Vanier residents and visitors came together in early September to celebrate the vibrant neighbourhood and mark the unofficial end of summer.
To help say so long to the season of hot, sticky nights – and embrace the coming autumn season – the Vanier BIA held its “East Feast” evening with food, music and street theatre.
As DJs spun old-school funk and party beats, attendees dined on food from local eateries including Muckleston & Brockwell, Bridgehead, Sundae School, Ola Cocina, Meatings, Rico Peru and Beechwood Farmers Market vendors.
Elsewhere, Sutherland’s Restaurant, ClockTower Brew Pub and Royal Oak added to the festive atmosphere by extending the event to within their respective venues.
Outside, Montreal street theatre troupe Labokracboom delighted children and adults alike with their 16-foot giant marionette. An interactive sound installation engaged visitors as they explored music inside a giant glowing dome, while Windows Collective’s interactive experimental projections transformed the exterior of Red Door Provisions. And, as the sun set, Shift Yoga led dozens of participants in an evening yoga session.
