Molson Indy Week Parties

July 22, 23, 24, 25

By Catherine Barr


The Moson Indy Vancouver has gone through some changes over the last few years. Fewer drivers, less celebrities and a somewhat sketchy financial outlook means that the race is always looking for ways to reinvent itself. Still, thanks to the people of Vancouver, the Indy party week festivities remain in high gear with the help of local bar and restaurant owners who always know how to attract a enthusiastic local crowd. Check out the action that took place all last week.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
