Fern posted some photos yesterday of my favorite annual event here, the Vic West Corn Roast. It's been happening every September for the last 10 years and just gets more popular and better every year. Free Ice Cream, Free Roast Corn, good live music, and Zucchini Races - what could be better? Today's photos focus on one of the major events, the Zucchini NASCAR Races.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
