Family and Friends Reunion at Veranda Beach

Tsawwassen Gang Family and Friends Reunion

Last Night was Texas night for the Tsawwassen Reunion Gang of five families from Vancouver! Even the adults were all decked out. The night prior was Caribbean night and a Mexican, 50′s and White Trash night are still to come!

It’s the Tsawwassen Reunion Gang’s first time to Veranda Beach, having discovered it through a friend that owns a family cottage at Veranda Beach. Historically the Gang went to Tofino, however, no more as they are loving it at the Beach and they’ve already booked again for next year!

Veranda Beach is the perfect place for reunions of family and friends!

What an incredible kick off to summer at Veranda Beach!

Getting ready for the Celebrations!

Canada Day on July 1st kicked off with face painting and tatoos to decorate everyone for the festivities, followed by a British Columbia Salmon BBQ, “North Half” Rock and Roll band on the Boardwalk and finished with many Veranda Beach guests watching Canada’s second largest Fireworks show from the water in Osoyoos.  Fireworks by boat is simply an amazing experience.
