Party Rockers in BC Night
By Catherine Biollo
BC Night opened Tuesday at 7pm with anticipation as participants waited outside the Stanley Park Ballroom for the doors to open. The open hall featured tables full of sandwiches and beer, so no frowns could have made it past the door. The room filled up fast as delegates met their friends and colleagues chatting and awaiting the BC Night’s local live band.
AME BC started a new trend at BC Night this year. With distribution of their hats from tables and representatives walking around it seemed that within a period of ten minutes nearly a third of the people in the room were wearing them. The hats, I must add, are really nice this year - the soft grey material seemed to suit everyone.
It didn’t take long for people to get their moves on once the band, The Famous Players, came on. With the band playing hits from today, the 90s and beyond the dance floor was packed. Others who were not as into the dancing spirit could be found in the adjacent hallway, it was considerably quieter out there which was perfect for conversation without missing out on the great tunes from the band.
“What makes BC Night BC Night?” - Besides the Granville Island beer, the local band, BC corporate sponsorship for the night, and AME BC hats floating around everywhere - I’m not sure, but I’d love to come again to find out.
