I checked out BC Street in Richmond, and loved the Tofino tent. They've
completely transformed a white outdoor tent into a rainforest. The
first thing I noticed when I walked in was the smell. Cedar scent hung
in the air, and made me feel like I was in a forest on the coast.
My favorite part of the Tofino tent was a green
screen photo booth. You stand on the mark, they snap your pic, and then
the background will transform to show you surfing a massive wave or
holding an enormous salmon (I went with the fish). I wish I could have
seen the pic right away, but they'll be emailing it to me soon.
also the chance to chat with a local Aboriginal carver, as well as
plenty of artwork. Very laid-back vide -- a must visit.
