Looking at the Sunset Beach field, before and after the 4/20 commercial cannabis carnival

ADVERTISEMENT

Sunset Beach Park in Vancouver hosted the 25th anniversary edition of the 4/20 festival, the first since last October’s nationwide legalization of marijuana.

Promoters called it a protest. The Park Board called it a commercial festival.

Promoters set-up nearly 300 booths for rent on the soccer field, without a permit from the city. One of the biggest banners on the site was for an automated teller machine.

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck. Well, the Park Board wins.

Despite the promoters covering part of the pitch with plastic, it will be several weeks before the green, not-for-toking grass near English Bay is back to normal. See photographs from April 18 vs. April 21.
