This year's sunny weather definitely worked its magic to fill the aisles at our recent March 22nd show in Victoria and even entice visitors outside to give some electric bikes a whirl. There was something for everyone - from activities like table tennis or dancing to the swing tunes of Oliver Swain and Trio Voltaire...to make-overs and manicures...three fashion shows...a very popular Spin and Win prize wheel...and a guest appearance by the very funny and popular Vicki Gabereau. Almost 125 exhibitors gave visitors a variety of products and services to consider. Thank you to everyone who participated at this year's show. We hope you will be back next year. Meanwhile, stay tuned for details about our Vancouver show, coming this September.
