Event Title


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.


"Nine days, five riders, two coasts." That's what it says on the H2V website where half a dozen North Shore heroes are jetting across country for the ride of a lifetime. Kyle Balagno and his riders are cycling coast-to-coast to cure Juvenile Diabetes in support of Kyle's daughter, Taylor, and other kids who suffer. A big kickoff gala was held last week in Gastown at So.cial at Le Magasin. Also, last Sunday at Ambleside, the annual Coho Festival saw sunshine and salmon combined for another successful summer tradition that everyone loves.

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.

Big thanks to Dave Jones and his dad, and the other boys behind the Coho Beach Bar, who helped me pour the pints all day long.
