40th Anniversary Pride Parade Shines Bright - NEWS 1130 In Your Community

Last Updated Aug 6, 2018 at 5:12 pm PST

The 42nd annual Powell Street Festival – Canada’s longest running Japanese-Canadian cultural celebration took over Oppenheimer Park. From Taiko drummers to art, sushi, bonsai trees and origami this festival is a showcase of Japanese culture and it’s rich history in our city.

I joined our sister station KiSS Radio and walked the 40th annual Pride Parade where Justin Trudeau made a star appearance. LOVE took over the streets of Vancouver as the city came out to support global love, unity and the LGBTQ community.

BC Day was thankfully a slower pace.. enjoying all art forms including the new indigenous exhibition at the Harmony Arts Festival on now through August 12 at Ambleside in West Vancouver. I fell in love with these Squamish Nation hand painted snowboards!

See you next weekend Vancouver,
