Celebrating East Vancouver music, community, and culture, the East Van Summer Jam had a successful first year at Strathcona Park on Saturday.
Organized by the Boom Booms, the event included the finest East Van musical talent, soccer and basketball matches, a skateboard demonstration and some of the cities finest food trucks.
Despite the rain, hundreds came out to support the event with all proceeds donated to Music Tree charitable initiatives.
The cheerful beach pop band BESTiE kicked off the show at 2PM bringing a little sunshine into the souls of an otherwise dreary crowd. The music continued through the afternoon with performances by Elastic Bond, The New Royals, The Funkhunters, The Rascalz, and Ta’Kaiya Blaney. Finally, The Boom Booms closed down the event with their signature upbeat dance-party inducing jams.
