Vancouver is the home of the 102nd Grey Cup Festival later this month and this town is no stranger to football greatness and good times. The 1955 Grey Cup game in Vancouver was the first to be held outside of Ontario and Vancouver has also hosted the Grey Cup Championship in 1958, 1960, 1963, 1966, 1971, 1973, 1983, 1986, 1987, 1990, 1994, 1999, 2005, and 2011. Here’s a look back at some of these moments thanks to the City of Vancouver Archives and the Vancouver Public Library:
