A little belated but worth mentioning that yesterday was Canada Day. We spent the day in Cloverdale for the Surrey Canada Day festivities out there, and I shot a lot of photos during our time on the ground.
The main reason we were out there was to cover the celebrations on Miss604.com.
Even though it was rainy, it was still a great event. I only wish we could have stayed longer, but Rebecca’s health was waning at the onset of early evening as she’s been battling a head cold over the past few days. Short on time right now, but I’ll post some more of my favorite photos from the day later.
Updated: August 2, 2010: It’s taken me a while, but here are a variety of other shots that I took. Event photography continues to grow on me, but it’s really a fun challenge each time. You have to adapt to the venue, lighting, crowd, staging, and entertainment.
This is a great tradition of Surrey Canada Day celebrations. If you come up, you can get a cupcake for free. And quite honestly, everyone loves cupcakes. People from all walks of life, young to old, line up for these things.
Canada Day will be the time in the lower mainland to bust out all of your 2010 Olympics gear for years.

I kind of fell in love with the Dragonette when they took the stage.
In the last three years we’ve celebrated Canada Day in Surrey, I have never been let down. Even with the slight bit of rain that fell during the day, it still remains one of the best, free events for families.
