Vagabond Film Show was a big success

Event was so popular organizers are considering doing two nights next year

The Vagabond Film Show on May 1 was so successful we may have to do two nights next year.

The red carpet event proved to be one of Hope’s more unique and popular events with a sold out show and even a waiting list for any available tickets. The live music which kicked off the show was amazing and showcased some of Hopes amazing musical talent.

Following the live music we jumped straight into the film contest and with 13 entries it made picking a winner a difficult task. Sam Burnett won first place with his video “Hairless for Haiyan” and Johnny Beach came in second  with “Iceland Ring Road.”

This year’s Vagabond Film Show was dedicated to the ever smiling long-time resident and employee of Manning Park, Wayne Mckay. The 50/50 dance-off event raised $305 to help Wayne Mckay’s family get through this rough time. Seeing the unbelievable support for this event has been amazing.

Will Baerg, Justin Brown and myself want to thank everybody for helping and attending the show and hope to see you next year. Nothing is over.

Dan Pereda,

Hope, B.C.
