Culture Days Count Down!

North Shore Culture Days is just around the corner and there are more than 70 events now registered!  We kick off on Friday September 26th at 5pm in Shipbuilders' Square at the final Friday Night Market of the season.  North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto, North Vancouver District Mayor Richard Walton, and West Vancouver Mayor Michael Smith will be centre stage with special musical guests from Fairfield Music including: Clayton Hill (of Trooper fame!), singer Rose McNeil, and a whole bunch of enthusiasic guitar students.
