There was a red carpet, papparazzi and all the glitz and glam you would find in Hollywood as Parksville celebrated the 84th Academy Awards in style Feb. 26 at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre.

The food, catered by Spice of Life, paid gustatory homage to the nominees for best picture and featured different dishes representing each movie.

The elaborate extravaganza wasn’t the sell out organizers had hoped for but organizers Carrie Powell-Davidson said they still hope the inaugural Oscar party will become an annual event.
