GALLERY: Monterey rolls out the red carpet

Next up for the Oak Bay centre is a St. Patrick’s Day dinner March 15

Monterey Recreation Centre celebrities enjoyed a night out in their “sparkle and shine” earlier this month.

Guests faced the paparazzi on the red carpet then enjoyed dinner, watching excerpts from timeless Oscar classics and listening to Oscar-winning songs such as Over the Rainbow.

There were even awards – the Golden Bunnies (like the Oscars but made of chocolate) went to top performers. Who knew that the first Academy Awards ceremony was held on May 16, 1929 and the ceremony lasted only 15 minutes? The 90th Academy Awards air on March 4.

The next event at the Monterey Recreation Centre is the Saint Patrick’s Dinner on Thursday, March 15. Visit the centre at 1442 Monterey Ave. for information and tickets.
