Canstruction – on this weekend

This week someone at work told me about the Canstruction display that was happening at Canada Place all week. I hadn’t heard about this event before, but it’s been happening every year since 2003. I had no idea! Over the last couple of months I had received a couple of emails with pictures of these types of can displays, but without any information. I didn’t realize this was happening here.

Canstruction is a free event and they accept cash and food donations that go to The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. These donations along with all the non-perishables and cans of food that were used to create the sculptures. It’s a lot of food. Someone is going to be eating an awful lot of sardines because there was a large car display made entirely out of black and gold sardine cans. My contribution? Cans of tuna, corn and black beans.

I took lots of pictures. You can see them all here.

The event is open all weekend, but it’s over at 5:00 pm tomorrow. Bring some cans of food and your camera.
