ZooZoo opens the Festival

May 29, 2012

The Festival kicked off last night with a wonderful party featuring an excerpt of the delightful show ZooZoo, a glamourous guest, nibbles and drinks, and live music.

 

Executive Artistic Director Katharine Carol thanked our incredible sponsors with a special shoutout to our presenting sponsor Coast Capital Savings who she called a “true partner.” She also
welcomed members of City Council as well as staff, volunteers, bloggers and artists.

 

One of the show highlights occured when an episode of penguin musical chairs had musican Will Stroet giving over his seat to a large and very insistent penguin. I won’t give too much away as our
youth blogger, Maxwell Neck will be reviewing the full ZooZoo show later today.

Equally surprising was an appearance by Reiko, one of the Real Housewives of Vancouver (see photo above), who certainly added pizazz to the evening’s festivities. She’ll be here with her family to
take in a few shows later ths week.

 

The Festival is now in full swing with pint-sized fans milling around Granville Island enjoying activities, shows and generally having a great time!
