I have to start off my last post about Surrey’s Canada Day celebration by saying it was one of the smoothest-run events we’ve ever attended. Folks could setup their tents, umbrellas, and chairs on the lawn in anticipation of the concerts meanwhile the midway was busy spinning away and the booths drew in thousands. Everyone was having a great time; there was laughter, cheering and spontaneous renditions of Happy Birthday Canada.
Here are some sights (sounds coming soon) as captured by John because well, he’s the one with the camera in our family and he knows how to use it. You can view more in his Flickr set.

From a media perspective, John and I had no issues getting where we needed to be in order to cover the event and were able to enjoy all it had to offer. Big thanks to the City of Surrey for having us out and I can’t wait until the Surrey Fusion Festival that is coming up July 18-20th in Holland Park (note the new sponsored badge in my sidebar). I’ll have three full days of coverage of that event so look for us out there that weekend.
