Organizers at the Mary Winspear Centre wanted to create a patriotic summer experience, timed to kick off the Canada Day festivities that take over Greater Victoria in the days following.

If showing off their loudest red and white attire isn’t fun enough, the food certainly makes the event worthwhile.

“Guests can choose to bring their own food and dine potluck style with friends or partake in the catered barbecue dinner prepared by Island Culinary Services,” said Carey Salvador, the Mary Winspear Centre’s marketing coordinator.

With sunshine, great food and beautiful scenery, the third annual event was a success for all.
