The exquisite vocals of the Vancouver Cantonese Opera echoed from the Bamboo Theatre Stage as I arrived on site for the 5th annual Richmond World Festival. Continuing past the Digital Carnival, and a few more pop-up performance spaces, I arrived at the food truck row where five dozen eateries on wheels were ready to serve up decadent treats for the weekend.

A performer blew giant bubbles as vendors displayed their handcrafts, a pair of kids donned sumo suits and began a battle in a ring. Grupo América warmed up the YVR Mosaic Stage and I noticed that Tsatsu Staqayu Coastal Wolfpack would be headlining the Lansdowne Global Stage that night.
