Trout Lake, Free Skate

Well, it’s official, Trout Lake has frozen over for the first time in about four decades. Enough so that today hundreds of people and one drone congregated on top of the frozen snowy ice surface to skate, play hockey, and just hang out in general. We went down there to check out all the excitement today. Here are some pictures taken from either side of the lake this morning.

All Male Ballerinas to Return to Vancouver

"New York’s infamous all-male ballerinas return with a fresh batch of highbrow hilarity following Vancouver’s 2015 sold out smash hit!

Brimming with breathtaking artistry and rampant sauciness, the cross-dressing company have been making audiences laugh for more than 40 years with their affectionately irreverent tributes to the classical ballet canon. In their hotly-demanded return, ‘The Trocks’ will lovingly skewer such balletic favourites as Swan Lake, La Esmeralda, and Don Quixote with all of their histrionic drama and incessant pantomime.

Don’t miss the international dance sensation showcase their extraordinary technical prowess…in size 12 pointe shoes!"
