Canada Day at Ambleside

Jul 1, 2004

By Catherine Barr


Brilliant sunshine meant lots of smiles on July 1 at West Vancouver's Ambleside Park. Canada Day celebrations drew hundreds of families down to the beach for an afternoon of food, fun and activities that included face painting, crafts, pottery, live music and a Canada Day flag made entirely out of balloons. The firefighters were on hand with their trucks for demonstrations as was the Coho Society whose members grilled up some fresh salmon. Check out all the action here.
