Gastown Prohibition Festival

Whilst out biking the other day I stumbled upon this festival in Gastown.  It was amazing.  Held in and around the Lamplighter to celebrate 85 years of the venue. Concentrated all in one block there was so much going on, music, costumes, dancing.  You could even get a close shave, you know, if you are the type of person who shaves, and aren’t letting it grow in a ridiculous shape for Movember!

So much fun.
