Canada Day in West Vancouver July 1, 2007

Jul 1, 2007

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


Canada Day fireworks and fun returned this past weekend to West Vancouver and Ambleside Park where hundreds of families came out to celebrate our nation's birthday. Food, crafts, live music and displays galore gave everyone something to cheer about. After dark, a spectacular synchronized fireworks display lit up the night sky which was coordinated and simulcast with the downtown display off of Canada Place. Hats off to organizers for putting the bang back into this holiday tradition.

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.
