Plans are coming together to finally see the return of McBarge or the Freedom 500. It was a floating McDonald’s during Expo 86 and has now achieved cult status.
For 30 years it sat abandoned in Burrard inlet and became a place for graffiti artists, ghost hunters, and amateur and sometimes professional filmmakers. At the end of 2015 it was towed off with a banner reading “History in the Making”. Now something is finally going to happen.
On October 21 the public is invited to board the barge and see the vision. A crowd funding campaign that hopes to turn the McBarge into according to the owners “a major BC attraction showcasing the history, technology, stories and experiences offered in the Pacific,” with an aim to discuss issues of preservation and environmentalism. Tickets for the Bring back McBarge campaign are available HERE
