    In my very immodest opinion, I think the Harmony Arts Festival it is one of the absolute best in the Lower Mainland. It includes a wide variety of musical styles, community art displays and very high quality foods. It is also easy to get to by bike, bus, or, on foot. No car needed. With the ocean as the backdrop and a beautiful view of the Moon at night, what could be more perfect?!
