The BC Liberal interns were super excited to participate in the 2015 Korean Cultural Heritage Festival, which took place on Saturday August 8th.  We arrived bright and early at Swangard Stadium, and were surprised to be hit with grey and windy weather.

While the weather was not optimal, our positivity compensated for the lack of sun.  It also helped that our booth stood out.  In a sea of white tents, we stood out with our blue tent, and excited volunteers.

As the festivities started we got to hear traditional Korean music, see Tae Kwon Do demonstrations, and engage with the Korean community alongside Minister @AmrikVirkBC, and MLA @DouglasBing.

We soon forgot about the grey weather, because we were rocking our BC Liberal sunglasses.  Additionally the crowd joined in on the sunglass madness.  In the course of a few hours we managed to give out over 700 pairs of sunglasses.

We want to say thanks to all of our awesome volunteers who made our booth a welcoming place, and the festival goers for the warm reception.
