The Pacific Rim Whale Festival (‘WhaleFest’, locally ) was mentioned in an article appearing online in the Wall Street Journal featuring a list of great things to do or see in 2010/11.
The list of activities and events that writer Andy Georgiades chose to highlight included the ROM ( Royal Ontario Museum ), Quebec Winter Carnival, the Calgary Stampede, and the CNE ( Canadian National Exhibition ). Read the Wall Street Journal Article.
There has been a tradition of having local artists design the annual poster. Featured Artists have included; Marla Thirsk, Mark Hobson, Shannon McWhinney, and recently Angie Roussin . I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s poster revealed. WhaleFest is celebrating it’s 25th Year in 2011, A new logo was recently introduced, and by all accounts it reflects the mood of the festivities.
