Vancouver’s best-looking summer picnic is officially underway in Yaletown.
For its third year on the West Coast, Dîner en Blanc is happening in David Lam Park at the east end of Davie Street.
Organizers had a tough time keeping the popular event’s location a secret up to the 6 p.m. embargo this year.
Local broadcaster Ron Wilson noticed something white and fancy going on in the park relatively early in the day. And a few cyclists’ complaints were spotted in the Straight.com comments section where they grumbled about suspicious Seawall closures that began in the late afternoon. But nobody at Dîner looks like their evening was soured by a premature spoiling of the surprise.
Check in with the @GeorgiaStraight on Twitter and with Straight reporter @michdas for more photos posted throughout the evening. And return to Straight.com for a complete photo gallery shot by Andrew Chin that we’ll have up Friday morning (August 22).
Until then, enjoy a peek via the photo above.
