Hundreds celebrate on CBC Plaza as Canucks take game 1

It was damp but definitely not dreary as hundreds of Canucks fans gathered on our plaza yesterday to watch Game 1 of the Western Conference NHL Playoff finals.Vancouverites who IMG_3039.JPGbraved the rain were treated to a sizzling match-up between the victorious Canucks and opponents the San Jose Sharks. 

The street party kicked off with everyone swaying to the bumping beats of all-Canadian playlist from CBC Radio 3. Red jacketed ambassadors got everyone into the blue-green-white spirit by painting faces, foreheads, and even the top of someone's head!

We'll be back Wednesday for game 2 starting at 4:00 pm. We hope to see you there!
