SETTING UP FOR THE JUNO AWARDS FESTIVAL ON GRANVILLE ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT MARCH 26, 2009
One of the events taking place in Vancouver this weekend is the 2009 Juno awards - recognizing the contribution that Canadian artists have made to the world of music - it is held in a different Canadian city each year - this is our year to host it - in additional to the formal awards ceremony at GM Place on Sunday night there is also a street block festival along the Granville Entertainment strip - there will be some free open air concerts but most of the events will be inside these tents - a $30.00 wristband gets you access for the entire weekend - should be quite the scene there this weekend - along with the thousands who usually come down to drink there will also be the visitors taking in the action.
Yes I intend to make an appearance sometime on the weekend.
A WALK IN THE SEARCH OF SPRING
Today I took along my camera as I went for my walk - I took it for a specific reason - to see if there are any signs of spring given our continuing cool weather here on the coast and I am pleased to report that there are a few and only a few signs of it. The Cherry Blossom festival is slated to start next week and there is little sign that the trees are ready to bloom - they are about three weeks late.
Did find this blooming tree in the courtyard of my condo complex.
A couple of lonely daffs in the courtyard as well.
A great array of crocus near Sunset Beach in Vancouver.
A unnamed flower near the beach as well.
This isn't a flower - it the sun dial capsule at English Bay - from here I headed for lunch - a visit to the Gym and then proceeded to Granville Mall to see the setup for the Juno Street Party that starts tonight.
