CAT'S EYE: Boat Show at the Creek
There was lots to celebrate this year at North Vancouver’s Mosquito Creek Marina as the seventh annual Boat Show at the Creek sailed into town. Owned and operated by the Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumix (Squamish Nation), the marina was also celebrating its 50th anniversary in conjunction with the annual boat show. An exciting opening night reception party aboard the stylish Celebration of Water took place to kick off the weekend’s festivities as local dignitaries, participants and friends got a chance to cash in on the last of the great summer weather and toast the occasion in style.
