Diner En Blanc Vancouver: Diners Decked Out In White Descend On Downtown


It's one of France's greatest exports next to baguettes, Godard movies and Thierry Henry.

After 24 years, Diner en Blanc has made its way from Paris to Vancouver. It's an event in which a "secret location" is given at the last minute to thousands of friends and acquaintances.

Diners dressed all in white then take over a city's public space for an evening of elegance and glamour as foodies dine beneath the stars.

For a foodie destination like Vancouver, it's just a natural fit.

Here's some photos that attendees shared on Twitter. Bon appetit!
