Coho Festival and John Weston BBQ

Sep 7, 2008

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.


The annual Coho Festival in Ambleside always draws a large crowd hungry to contribute to conservation. The tradition continued this past weekend as families came out to enjoy the sunshine, some live music, informational displays and, of course, one of the best salmon barbecues around. Celebrity chefs cooked up a storm on the outside grills for this very good cause. And speaking of barbecues, Federal Conservative candidate John Weston hosted friends and supporters at his beautiful West Van home on Friday - just in time, it turns out, as the election has now officially been called for October 14th and wannabe MP's have shifted things into high gear. Candidates, start your engines.

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.
