Waterfront Park is located by the Lonsdale Quay in close proximity to shops, bus terminal and SeaBus that carries people between downtown Vancouver and North Vancouver. It's a perfect location for family get together, outdoor concerts and arts event. Canada Day is great opportunity to spend a day exploring crafts of local artists while celebrating the national anniversary.
The artists exhibiting their arts and crafts are the members of North Vancouver Arts Council. The exhibitors include jewelery makers, wood decorators, fibre designers, pottery makers, photographers, painters and others like henna body artists.
Main stage was a performing place for groups like Al Mozaico Flamenco founded by Oscar Nieto and Kasandra "La China" in 2002, Pro Arte Canada Day Dance, Shin Myung Korean Drum Group, North Shore Celtic Ensemble or FIVEuvUS jazz band. There were lots of attractions for kids (play garden, street entertainers, face painting), maple leaf miniature flags giving away and atmosphere of shopping for artsy souvenirs.
