Steveston celebrates World Cup
Two days of music, games and fun in the sun helped wrap up World Cup Steveston at Steveston Park last weekend.
“[It was] the big finale,” said Alan Clark, vice president of the Steveston Community Society.
The event in the park was designed to be oriented towards families while down the street at the Buck and Ear another celebration was being thrown that was geared towards adults.
The two-day festival at Steveston Park featured live music from more than 10 different acts, plenty of children’s activities, a barbeque and face painting.
“We had a fun experience,” Clark said.
A highlight for many was getting to meet and have their picture taken with Rick Hansen.
Hansen stopped by the park on Sunday afternoon before heading over to participate in the festivities at the Buck and Ear and to watch Germany defeat Argentina 1-0 in the World Cup final.
The Rick Hansen Foundation is the beneficiary of the fundraising efforts of World Cup Steveston, which saw many of the village’s merchants support a competing country by decorating their shops and hosting a special event during the World Cup.
