Tourism Vancouver with the assistance of smashLab has just announced a campaign to introduce local culture to you. The campaign highlights the vast amount of arts and culture available in Vancouver; it promotes all types of culture as accessible, from opera to burlesque; and it encourages people to try something different. Visit Vancouver and find out why it is BC's most significant cultural destination. Learn more at http://www.cultureinvancouver.com/ &

A Sweepstakes is a significant component of the campaign. Tourism Vancouver is offering five incredible prizes, in which each “experience” has been uniquely tailored with themes ranging from Theatrical to Culinary. Each of the prizes offers truly special experiences that are uniquely individual. The Ultimate Experience—the grand prize—will offer a three-day weekend of behind-the-scenes sneak peeks into some of Vancouver’s most notable cultural venues, including passes to some of the most coveted local events. For each prize, the winner and a friend will receive two to three nights stay in Vancouver and dine at some of Vancouver’s best restaurants. Entering the sweepstakes is easy: just submit your name and email once for a chance to win any one of the five Experiences. The sweepstakes will end with the drawing of the final winner on January 6, 2012. Learn more at

Summer-like day in the Fall - Nov 3-2000 Victoria BC

It was a spectcular sunny fall day and the city was awash with fall colours. It was warm, with the occassional ugly clowd floating by toward Vancouver, but Victoria was under a whole in the sky. For Nov. 3 it was amazing. Enjoy the fall colors of greater Victoria. Maybe if you are somewhere else in the world you might want to come for a visit. October and now into November was great weather.
