“Through the Aviators” is a blog series created and written by the 2018 YVR Flight Crew. It will be composed of installments documenting our interactions and adventures at our 2018 Summer Festival Series events. Stay tuned for weekly stories and recaps!
On July 1st, 2018, the Flight Crew headed to the Steveston Village in Richmond to join the people of our nation in celebrating Canada’s 151st birthday and the rich heritage of our community. It was a high-spirited event where people from all around the Lower Mainland came together and experienced a variety of entertainment, concerts, and over 50 performances throughout the day.
The street party began bright and early at 6:30am with a pancake breakfast, and went all the way to 10:15pm; featuring, a street market, food trucks, street hockey, and a Canada Day parade! Historically, the festival has been famous for its salmon barbecue, where thousands of pounds of wild salmon filets are grilled over fire pits and sold along the street market.
The Flight Crew held their social media contest where participants could enter to win 2 FREE Flights to Shenzhen, Tianjin, or Mexico City. The crew enjoyed a sunny Canada Day interacting with the community that YVR values so close!
