CANADA DAY 2008

Better late than never…  Enjoy some pics from Canada Day earlier this year.

Fire Juggler
Some fun entertainment early in the day

Maple Syrup Taffy Lineup
I was actually up a few stairs in this long lineup.  Nice to see people enjoying Quebec’s traditional “tire sur la neige” (or maple syrup taffy in English) so much.

En Français

New Wave
The band “New Wave”, singing covers from the 70s to the 90s

Marion Torres
12 year old Marion Torres.  She had won a singing competition at Canada Place in 2006.  Great voice and great future for her I believe.

54-40 #2
The great Canadian band 54-40 sang all their hits for us — for free! :)

54-40 #3
On the last song, the singer invited people over to the stage to dance…

54-40 #4 - Invading the Stage
It didn’t take long for the crowd to answer the call…

54-40 #5 - Can You Spot the Singer?
This has GOT to be the best finish to a rock concert ever.  The band was totally submerged by the fans!
