Day 167 of 365…

THIS Friday and Saturday is Downtown Vancouver’s Annual Festival of the Arts known as Art In The Heart. Art In The Heart in Downtown Vancouver, WAThis FREE event will get under way at 5:30pm Friday. It is insane how many things are taking place during these two days. You will be able to explore 13 of the downtown art galleries, there will be a beer garden outside the main stage area in Turtle Place (which was just highlighted a couple days ago on this site). There will be street art and vendors, live music on 8 different stages. About 30 local restaurants downtown Vancouver will be open providing a huge variety of choices to eat.

The main stage will feature Hit Explosion at 8pm Friday. Hit Explosion performs 70’s disco and funk dance classics. Sounds like it will be a groovy good time!

Again the main stage is at Turtle Place on 7th and Main but most of the activities take place between Broadway and Columbia and 6th and 12th Streets (with a couple places outside that perimeter).
