On Saturday the Carnival Band wrapped up the last of a string of commitments on Granville Island that began on February 13

The entire two weeks were great fun, due in no small part to the dedication of the many carnies who were able to make it to the gigs.
Pachiel and Simmah travelled down from Lasqueti Island to play every single ‘Olympic’ gig, including busking, with the Carnival Band.
