Summer Love 2000 - Chilliwack (26/27-Aug-2000)


Ton went to the Dance/Techno/House festival "Summer Love" in Chilliwack with Michelle and we had a *GREAT* time. The party was from Saturday August 26 6 PM until Sunday August 27 at 10 AM ... Yes ... the whole night !!! There were thousands of people dressed dance party style and carrying "glow in the dark sticks" ... very nice to see everybody enjoying 4 different styles of music at the same time (on 4 stages) ... with all the visuals ... and there was fireworks, 3 big light beams, laser light, artists, live ladies piercing (on stage), the lake was decorated with underwater lights, there was the beach, the people (estimated to 10000), the great music ... just a great party !!!

Wrist band as proof of entrance.

Unfortunately it was a bit too cold ... but hey, dancing warmed us up pretty fast. Michelle and I got our special attention because of the blinking stars we were wearing on our heads. Everybody asked us about them! And for us it was easy to find each other. But now ... we are pretty tired and need some sleep (it's Sunday afternoon). Something the people that live around the Summer Love site definitely didn't get !!! I didn't bring my digital camera because of safety reasons, but we bought a Kodak disposable camera. I took it to London Drugs and the pictures became available on their web site (in stead of putting them on a CD). Unfortunately the CD-ROM or Web Site development (even cheaper than CD-ROM) is not a 1 hour service so we had to wait a few hours. The development and posting on their web site costs CAN $ 18.48 (including taxes) for 27 pictures. Not bad huh?
