Sapperton Days are back again this year, celebrating a great little heritage neighbourhood in New Westminster.
When: Saturday June 21st – Sidewalk Sale, 10am to 4pm and Sunday June 22nd – Street Festival, 11am to 4pm.
Where: Between Braid & Sherbrooke Streets on East Columbia, New Westminster
How to get there: You could drive or simply take the Millenium Line Skytrain to Sapperton and walk up the hill beside Royal Columbian Hospital until you get to Columbia Street. The fair starts one block after you hang a right.

A few years ago I met up with Fin, the Vancouver Canucks mascot, over in Sapperton Park. We giggled, posed for a photo, and he blew steam out of his blow hole (okay I’m not too sure the significance of that) but it was all a part of a really fun day out.
