All good things must end - and the 2016 Uptown Live Festival was no exception. On July 23rd, thousands of B.C. residents flocked to Sixth Street, delighting in the sights and sounds that greeted them. They strolled among the endless vendor aisles; they danced to the jazz-fused chords of New Westminster’s rising talent; and they marveled as their children abandoned tablets for carnival rides. It was a perfect summer event.
Now it will be a perfect summer memory.

The downtown streets are shaking. The sidewalks rattle with the slide of an electric guitar; the pavement rumbles with the steady beat-beat-beat of a drum; and every building sways to the shriek of a crowd gone wild. There’s music in every second and every step.
