High times at 33rd Vancouver Folk Music Festival
Under a radiant blue sky, Vancouverites got their inner hippie freak on yesterday at Jericho Beach for the kick-off to the 33rd Annual Vancouver Folk Festival. VO brings you some of the highlights of this west coast tradition.
The Folk Fest is "fun!" says five and a half year old Aliya. She and Tim show off their moves for VO in the late afternoon sun.
Joe Kwon of The Avett Brothers gets caught up in the moment.
Shake what your mama gave you!
"High quality ingredients" is the secret to making a whale's tale, said Gary Doornbosch who co-owns one of the many food stands where festival goers can refuel after hitting the dance floor.
Just sit back and take it all in.
The Vancouver Folk Festival runs from July 16-18.
