The Rock the Shores 2015 festival returned to the green green grass of West Shore Parks & Rec fields this weekend. Naturally, the smoking hot festival weather returned, too…that’s JUST what happens for Rock the Shores.
I spent the better part of 10+ hours at the music festival through the weekend and had the opportunity to join photografriends in the photo pit to take some shots of the bands, the artists, the crowd, the people that are Rock the Shores. I will add more to this photo gallery as I go through the better part of (cough) 1,200 photos. Yes, if I’m one thing — it’s snap happy.
THIS is why we need pianos in random places.
Because Steven Tyler just might show up and play one.
Thanks to the Victoria HarbourCats for letting me live out a dream of hitting REAL balls in a REAL ball park! They have games tonight and tomorrow, first pitch at 6:35pm.

If the open-minded city that rocks a rainbow of heritage buildings, flowers on every corner and big blue ocean wasn’t colourful enough for you — the City of Victoria just got even more brighter — and diverse.

The Free-B Film Festival released their 2015 lineup and there’s some really good movies again this year!!
We’re always stoked when Cirque du Soleil comes to Victoria. Opening night at Varekai thrilled us bringing the elements of dance, acrobatics, humour, music and color — all presented in a level of artistry that the Cirque du Soleil productions are known for. Varekia continues at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre through May 31st. Tickets from www.selectyourtickets.com
Here’s a look at opening night and a peek backstage at Cirque du Soleil – Varekai:
It’s time to add a little more kindness to your day, #yyj.
As we rush from work — to coffee — to work — to home — to errands — to dinner, we often encounter people that are experiencing homelessness in our city. Everyone has different feelings when you pass a person on a street that may need a little kindness. Some of us pass on spare change, some drop by a coffee, a cookie, a smile. Now you have another great way to give a little kindness in Victoria.
Now THIS would make our days a lot brighter when those rainy, dark Westcoast days come to visit…It’s from a Seattle artist/creator Peregrine Church — Behold RAINWORKS:
Here’s a Spring Break rainy-day activity to do with the kids…In just one location you can “see” a movie, hang out in the forest, go to the beach, learn some First Nations languages at the Our Living Languages exhibit and see the most incredible peeks at wildlife with the Wildlife Photographer of the Year display..all while staying dry.
Hey I’m Tori the intern and I’m going to give you a peek behind the curtain at the craziness that goes on here at ocean 98.5 headquarters.
First and foremost you should know that everyone here is SUPER nice. If you ever listened and thought “wow, they seem nice” I can assure you it’s not an act, they really are that nice. Everyone welcomed me with open arms despite me being just a lowly student from Alberta. This was a good thing because I was also a nervous student.
