Another Perspective: Canada Day at CRAB Park

A poster at CRAB Park from last week

Happy Canada Day! There are many events happening all over the city today but I want to make a quick post on the afternoon festivities at CRAB Park (also known as Portside Park) because there is little on it. On July 1st there will be an all ages festival from 1-4pm. CRAB Park is located at the North end of Main Street and west of the over pass. Here is a map:

The line up of musical performers:

1pm – Circus in Flames

  • Featuring Doug Andrew, the former lead of Shaghai Dog

2pm – Micheal Van Eyes Lot

  • Ian Tiles ( Pointed Sticks, Buddy Selfish ) on drums and Ronnie Scott ( Shaghai Dog ) on bass

3pm – Blackberry Wood

A couple of photos to give you the lay of the land:

You know, CRAB Park is a place to see the city from another perspective. Mix up your Canada Day celebrations and stop by for a bit.

    I love CRAB park.. it’s a beautiful spot and the view of the Burrard Inlet is just stunning. I’ve noticed way more people taking their pets here lately and the pier is really nice too! Special place!
