This past weekend oppenheimer park hosted the Powell Street Festival. This is an annual Japanese Festival that is the largest festival of its kink in Canada and the longest running community arts festival in the Lower Mainland. I have been to past festivals and this looked to be the most successful yet!
Representatives from the Powell Street Festival are on the working committee for the new park. It is exciting to see the park transform for the weekend. This park is probably one of the most intensively used park in the city and obviously plays an important role for many cultures.
