Evergreen / Agent Shares: Dance party at Pearson Airport

Enjoy a Kitchen Party at the airport waiting area

As reported by Travelweek, a group of Newfoundlanders with instruments and a trove of traditional music helped make a flight delay a joyous experience. 

Some travellers at Pearson International Airport in Toronto waiting for a WestJet flight to Newfoundland and Labrador on Tuesday brought out some instruments and it wasn’t long before the waiting area became a Newfoundland Kitchen Party – airport style.

Sean Sullivan and Sheldon Thornhill belted out a variety of tunes on accordion and guitar, including “Sweet Forget Me Not,” “Grey Foggy Day” and “Aunt Martha’s Sheep.”

Michelle Sacrey-Philpot, a TPI agent who was in Toronto with her husband, says the flight to St. John’s was abuzz after the party, with many people sharing the video via social media.

A video of the impromptu party that has since gone viral shows several people joining the singing, including a young lad who delighted the crowd by taking on the role of lead vocalist for a while.

Some people even left their seats and danced to the music.
