More than 2,500 people gathered near Science World yesterday evening (August 22) for Le Dîner en Blanc 2013.
The food and style spectacle required attendees to don all-white attire and collect at a number of secret locations scattered around the city. From those gathering points, people were led on foot or transported by bus or boat to the extra secret location of the actual event, which, this year, was the park in False Creek adjacent to Science World.
Le Dîner en Blanc started in Paris 25 years ago. Last year’s inaugural soirée for Vancouver was held under the glow of the Olympic Torch at Jack Pool Plaza in Coal Harbour.
With a wait-list to participate in next year’s party reportedly longer than 10,000 names, Le Dîner en Blanc has quickly become the summer event for many people in city.
Here are a selection of photos from the event from photographer Andrew Chin.
