BC Place Photos: From the Miss604 Flickr Pool

September 30th, 2011 @ 10:00am (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

BC Place will open its roof for the BC Lions tonight as thousands of spectators enjoy the newly renovated stadium. I’ve been tracking the progress since the dome deflated in May of 2010 and following along whenever the public notices a new addition or more recently, the stadium’s impressive light show. The following images were all contributed to the Miss604 Flickr Group over the last two years.
