Attending the Italian-French Car Show at Waterfront Park in North Vancouver for Father’s Day has become somewhat of a tradition. After many years, this year was no different.
The Italian-French Car Show
We were joined by a few special friends and clients the morning of Sunday, June 18th for coffee and a light breakfast. Father’s and their kids had a great time exploring the showroom before heading off, convoy-style, to Waterfront Park. Despite some small showers the turnout was excellent and we found ourselves alongside a bevy of fantastically vintage and modern Italian and French conceptions.
Finally, after a fantastic time, we can’t wait for next year!
