Harmony Arts Festival BEST of the WEST makes the most of a gorgeous location
If you don't live on the North Shore, chances are you don't get over to West Vancouver very often. There's that mental block of a bridge, which actually isn't such a big deal once you hop in the car or even on a bus from downtown. And once you arrive at the waterfront near Ambleside Pier, you'll wonder why you don't go more often.
The Harmony Arts Festival, which continues this week until Sunday (August 10), is the perfect time to visit. The food and wine options have expanded this year, and there's plenty of art to browse, a cool installation, and free outdoor concerts and kids activities on offer.
I ventured over for the Best of the West culinary event last night (August 6). Below, find some photos I took as a guest at the event, which brought together 12 North Shore restaurants and 12 B.C. wineries on Ambleside Pier. Let's start with a few of the general festival atmosphere.
