If you opted to stay in the city this past long weekend, the Victory Square Block Party might have been at the top of your list of things-to-do.
Long-since thought of as the last hurrah of the summer, the mini music festival at the park at the corner of Hastings and Cambie is in its ninth year (or, maybe that’s eight as it did take a year off between now and 2004 when it began). This year, local acts included Kristi Lane Sinclair; Cascadia; Young Braised; Dead Ghosts; Slow Learners; Jay Arner; The Courtneys; and Slam Dunk.
If you ask us, sitting on the sloped lawn, eating a taco out of the nearby La Taqueria truck while being treated to free entertainment (including the best people watching of any loca; festival around), is far more relaxing than sitting in a ferry or Highway One line-up.
