A look back on this hot and steamy month reveals a July filled with excitement and special events. Whether it was breaking out the barbecue with friends, the celebration of 100 years of Canada’s naval forces, or the star-studded premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s big top production of Kooza, North Shore faces were in all the right places.
