"If the name Wendy Whelan doesn’t sound familiar, you need to get out more." -PNB Artistic Director, Peter Boal We are delighted to welcome Wendy Whelan to Seattle, to stage Alexei Ratmansky's Pictures at an Exhibition. She was one of the ten original dancers, and provided beautiful insight to this unique ballet.

It’s that time of year again where Vancouverites flock to the city’s annual fair and exhibition to take a bite out of the dozens of tasty delights the fair has on offer. Each year, the fair provides a tasty mix of new treats and old favorites. You can eat healthy at the Pacific National Exhibition, but, why would you? Follow our reporters to check out what do they have there.
The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) is one of Vancouver's largest and most attended summer attractions. This annual fair is usually held from mid August to early September. Join Susie Lee of West Coast Adventures as she enjoys the best of the fair.
When former New York City Ballet principal dancer, Wendy Whelan first heard the music for "Pictures at an Exhibition", she thought this section (called The Dance of the Unhatched Chicks) was very cute and light and that choreographer, Alexei Ratmansky would use it for a woman's solo. However Ratmansky has a unique way of defying expectations and clearly he went in a different direction...

MomMomOnTheGo and family spent a day at the PNE this summer and we had an amazing time. My entire family loved the SuperDogs show. They are very talented and well trained. It is absolutely great to watch the show and in my books is a must see. In total we spent 7 hours at the PNE and we could have stayed longer as there were still a ton of things we had not done. After 7 hours I was completely exhausted though and we left knowing that next year, we will be back for more.

The exhibition has been held in Hastings Park since it first took place in 1910. It was opened by then Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier as the Industrial Exhibition. The biggest attractions of the two-week fair are its numerous shops, stalls, performances, a nightly fireworks show, and the PNE Prize Home. The highest attendance the fair has recorded was 1.1 million in 1986, most likely due to Expo '86 that was occurring at the time. The PNE was once the second largest fair after the New York State Fair.
