Although June was a bit soggier than desired, July heated up Vancouver in more ways than one. Concerts, festival, and community events kept us all out and about. As we head into the second half of summer, the fun and excitement around Metro Vancouver isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. The following are event listings for August 2010.
