Last night, nearly 40,000 people swarmed to Dallas Road to take in the first Snowbirds performance over Victoria, since 2008!

The event was a fundraiser for The C.H.I.L.D. Foundation, which helps children with intestinal and liver disorders, organizers are hoping to raise $50,000. If you enjoyed the show, and weren’t able to donate on-site, you can still donate online at child.ca

“The Canadian Forces Snowbirds are our ambassadors to The Child Foundation and we’re so thrilled and so pleased they do this every year for us in a city in British Columbia,” says C.H.I.L.D. Foundation CEO Mary Parsons.

Here are some photos and videos from the community.
