In celebration of this incredible milestone, the ever-popular Salmon BBQ returned to Sunset Beach Park as part of the Stanley Park Brewing Bistro and the new Clearly Spectacle Lounge hosted guests at the Inukshuk Peninsula – both great compliments to the already well established YVR Observation Deck and The Keg Lounge. Randy Bachman, Chilliwack and Platinum Blonde highlighted the SHOREFEST concert series presented by LG 104.3FM.
