This weekend in Vancouver is Pride week in Vancouver, BC. Yes in Vancouver we celebrate Pride all week with so many parties and events.
Most of the concentration of the celebration is in the West End – Davie Street in particular. Making it a very busy weekend in Vancouver.
This year – the City of Vancouver painted four corners of an intersection on Davie Street at an area called Davie Village – with the bright colours of the rainbow to mark Pride Proud!!! I love the cross walk but I don’t understand how the City of Vancouver could spend $25,000.00 for painting them, that seems a bit excessive in spending!!! But then our City of Vancouver spends so much money – you have to wonder if City Hall is painted in Gold????
Last night was the big Davie Street Party which was fun but the rain and cloudy weather probably turned a few people away from the street party as it was a bit chilly last night. But we cannot complain here in Vancouver as the whole month of July we had solid sunshine – so a bit of cloud and rain after over 31 days of sunshine is okay.
Tonight is a big day with lots of Saturday night parties and events and then the Fireworks are down in English Bay at 10 pm tonight – I think it is Thailand team tonight. Personally I stay away from the Fireworks – too many ‘bridge and tunnel people’ coming in from the suburbs – which makes it unbearable.
However lucky me, gets to work at Ultra Love on Davie Street this afternoon and evening until 9 pm – which should be busy so I don’t have to listen to my co-worker who is very difficult to work with. But with lots of customers today should be a busy one down in the Westend of Vancouver this Pride 2013 weekend.
So Happy Pride 2013 Vancouver!!!
