There was lots to celebrate this year at North Vancouver’s Mosquito Creek Marina as the 7th Annual Boat Show at the Creek sailed into town. Held in conjunction with the marina’s 50th anniversary, and owned and operated by the Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumix (Squamish Nation), boat lovers got a chance to see how the millionaires live life on the water. 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.
