Is the circus coming or going?

June 20, 2013

The Midway came to West Broadway this morning. From my breakfast perch near South Granville, I noticed the West-bound, rush hour traffic was liberally spiced, for a time, with big trucks hauling an assortment of outlandish, and eye-catching things, such as giant strawberries. All the trucks were marked “Shooting Star Amusements,” According to their Web site, the Langley, B.C.-based “mobile midway,” is bringing their classic-style circus, including bumper cars, Ferris Wheel, and cotton candy, to the Point Grey Fiesta, at Trimble Park, over the weekend, June 21 to 23. Neighbourhoods-wise, travelling West, it’s Fairview (where I saw the trucks), Kitsilano, then Point Grey — here’s a good neighbourhood map ►. Click the images to enlarge them.
