The Turtles appear at VanDusen Gardens

The warmth of the sun brings out the crowds, and the turtles, to VanDusen Gardens in Vancouver.

As for the other Turtles, they began as surf band in 1965 with a hit penned by Bob Dylan: It Ain't Me Babe. Great vocals, smart arrangements and dumb lyrics combined to provide their biggest hit in the spring of 1967, knocking Penny Lane by the Beatles out of the number one position: Happy Together.
