The Kitsilano Showboat kicks off its 2014 season on Canada Day. Can you believe the classic Vancouver performance series is 79 years old this summer?
Founded in 1935, the Showboat offers free, live entertainment — from rock bands to Highland dancers — every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7 p.m. (Canada Day is a special exception). Aside from the family friendly environment and performances, the Showboat boasts picturesque views of Kitsilano Beach and the North Shore mountains beyond.
We have fond memories of the iconic stage, which got us thinking: how has it changed throughout the years? The good people behind the Showboat dug into their archives, and shared some great snapshots of this Vancouver summer institution.
Take a look:
Check out those hats on the Vancouver Fire Fighter Band!
You bet they can (can)!
The stage was packed with the Summer Pops Youth Orchestra.
Lederhosen and axes: you can't go wrong.
Rock it, ladies!
Gang's all here for the Kitsilano Boys' Band reunion!
We can't wait to see who 2014 will bring to the stage.
