it’s wednesday and i’m already looking forward to the weekend. it’ll be full of events and fun things to do. If you’re not already out n’about at the Dragon Boat Festival try one of these:

Starting with the Commercial Drive Festival, June 18th. (Festival Homepage and post on Beyond Robson)

“Free of Charge. Free of Boring Corporate Stuff. Free of Cars”.

Heading east… Sapperton Days in New Westminster, June 17-18

“Sapperton Day is a family oriented event celebrating New Westminster and Sapperton’s unique location and history. It is held in conjunction with the annual Sapperton Bike Festival.” (New Westminster Events)

This ‘older’ part of town is continuously revitalizing itself. With new developments and faces in the neighbourhood it’s about time it did some promotion. For more info check out the city’s events page noted above or check out the History of Sapperton Day page.

And last but not least, moving across the river we have the Whalley Community Festival June 17th (City of Surrey Events). “The Festival will host 3 stages of performers that include dancers, musicians and solos. The Cultural Food Fair will have foods from around the world. ”

It’s also Fathers’ Day this Sunday – don’t forget! Get out and enjoy – hopefully the sketchy June weather will produce some sun for these events 🙂

    […] Hopefully everyone had a great Fathers’ Day – if you were out on Commercial Drive, in New West, Surrey, at the Dragon Boat races (events post) or over at the 50th anniversary party for the Vancouver Aquarium. Holy cow this city has really kick started its summer. Who ever said it was ‘no fun‘? […]
