Vancouver 125 presented Summer Live this weekend in Stanley Park that saw dozens of local acts take to two stages in our city’s most beautiful setting. Hoola hoops, mini donuts, Frisbees, dancing, and more took place on the lawn with a backdrop of evergreens, surrounded by water.

Since we were away most of the weekend we only caught the very last part of Summer Live last night but here are a few of John‘s photos (view the full set on Flickr):

Arriving on the grounds, I immediately wondered (and I’m sure I’m not alone) if we can bring a festival like this back to the park each year. You could barely hear the stage noise from downtown (across Coal Harbour), everyone was well-behaved and happy, families enjoyed themselves, and all of the entertainment was free. Aside from logistical issues (which are to be expected given that it’s on a peninsula in the park) I heard few complaints.

We enjoyed our 15 minute walk to the festivities from our home in the West End and would love to have this event in our backyard again next year. Kudos to Vancouver 125 and their team of volunteers and sponsors.

If you have photos from Summer Live that you would like to share, consider adding them to the Miss604 Group on Flickr for possible feature.
