UBC Blueberry Fest
One of the highlights of being on campus during the summer months is the UBC Blueberry festival. It’s four days of yummy blueberry goodness from freshly-made blueberry pancakes to straight-up blueberry eating. There was even a blueberry tart eating contest! I didn’t enter, but I did enjoy a delicious blueberry tart.
Opening day was a little quiet. CiTR was setting up their live broadcasting table, and Steve Golob, the residence chef for Vanier was being interview by Brenda Grunau, the station manager at CiTR, before his live cooking demonstration. But as the clock struck noon, the lunch hour rush hit, and the blueberry scones, pancakes, blitzes, which is a crepe stuffed with blueberries and cream cheese, tarts, muffins, polenta cakes and crumbles were quickly snapped up.
Overall, the opening day of the Blueberry Fest had more of a blueberry bake sale feeling, but I’m sure the Family Day portion lived up to its festival name.
