THINGS TO CHECK OUT THIS WEEK IN GASTOWN

#MYGASTOWN PHOTO OP: MAKE IT RAIN

Looking for something new to photograph? This week is your last chance catch a glimpse of ‘Make it Rain’, the reflective art installation that took a temporary home at the Steam Clock pedestal.

And while you’re sneaking a last-minute selfie by the pop-up art tower, why not turn it into a ‘before and after’ photo op with the Steam Clock? The iconic landmark will make a grand return to its home on the corner of Cambie and Water Street in mid January.
