Hats Off Day 2012: Photos

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Burnaby Heights Merchants Association hosted their very popular Hats Off Day festival this past Saturday. Spanning almost a dozen blocks, from Hastings to Gamma, tens of thousands of people showed up to enjoy a parade, street-side barbecue, activities for kids, a vintage car show and shine, performances, and more. John Bollwitt and John Biehler set out on foot with cameras in hand for Miss604.com to capture the atmosphere of the day.

The skies opened up and dumped rain down, making the crowd disperse. John and John took refuge in the Burnaby Legion (stumbling across cheap beers and hot dogs) and most returned to the streets when the wind cleared off the showers a short while later.
