Totally Awesome Canada Day All Nighter
Posted June 30th, 2011 - 5:09 am by from Roosevelt, United States (Permalink)
Just found this event on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=206646722702493

I'll re-post in the main Van CS group too...

For those without facebook:

After the less than fantastic riot, it's time we get our loving groove back.

It's an outdoor MIDNIGHT-to-DAWN CELEBRATION of positive feelings, summer love, and cheesey pop music (although some DJs will take on reasonable genres like remixed swing)!

And if you're a visitor from abroad (hello couchsurfers!), welcome to Vancouver at its prettiest!

If you like this kind of stuff (especially remixed funk and soul), subscribe to us at:
and check out the weekly music show:

-- It's happening on Friday night until Saturday morning. The location will be announced a day before, on Thursday, June 30th. If you need to plan it out, the location is close to UBC. I'll make a map too if I'm not lazy.

-- The music starts at midnight and we go until a near-solstice dawn for the feel-good ending.

-- It's rain or shine. We'll bring a tarp just in case.

-- Ideally we hope to get about $5 from those who can afford it (there's lots of costs, from rental to gas costs to cleanup supplies), but there is no pressure because I love you all and I hope to see everyone there (it's been too long babe.) There will be a donation bucket visible.

-- We'll be on a generator and a proper PA system.

-- We will have an on-location cooking of potato and yam fries, hot chocolate, and coffee, so bring extra cash for the savory foods.

-- Please join our handsome cleanup crew so we don't have to do it all alone.

-- Any help with setup is great too! The more we get on the set up crew the more creative we can be with decor. Probably meet at 10pm. Click on my name above (either Oker or Oker Chen) and send a message that you're available.

-- bring all your toys from poi to glow art to DIY lanterns.

-- blankets to add to a pile for a cuddle puddle and rest area

-- cash for yam fries, coffee, and hot chocolate
