A cloudy day didn’t prevent this event from becoming a big success
Just over a week ago Greater Vancouver rang in Latin American Week with Carnival del Sol 2015, along the False Creek waterfront near Telus World of Science. For those that don’t know about Carnival del Sol, the festival’s aim is to recreate the Latin American fiesta experience for those residing within and visiting the Lower Mainland of BC. Practically all Latin American cultures are represented at the festival, blending a cultural mix of music, dance, arts & crafts, and the highlight – food! The annual event intends to ensure that all citizens and visitors experience authentic Hispanic culture at its best.
El Comal has been so busy at our shop and deli, taking care of patrons and filling customer orders that we were not able to set up an official tent at the event, but we did send a representative out in the field to explore (and enjoy!) the festival firsthand and to note the Mexican influence on the affair. Tough gig, right? Below are a few fun photos, complete with captions, of the 2015 Carnaval del Sol.
