BC Youth Week took place over the last few days (May 1-7) however there are still a few events happening this weekend that will be fun for the whole family.
Playland Extravaganza – Yes, Playland is open and today hosts special events for youth with a discounted day pass that you can get from various community centres around the city including Britannia, Hastings, Renfrew, Champlain, Killarney, Thunderbird and Trout Lake.
East Vancouver Amazing Race – You may notice teams making their way around your neighbourhood today from 11:00am – 3:30pm as a part of this event.
Skateboard event – Happening at Union Plaza Skate Park (Union and Quebec Street Vancouver) from 1:00pm – 4:00pm. This is “a non-competitive, family friendly skateboard event, celebrating and showcasing the practice, culture and history of skateboarding.” There’s a BBQ, music/bands, and swag booths. Presented along with the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition.
This could be a great way to spend the sunny day before heading over to GM Place for the Party on the Plaza ahead of tonight’s Canucks game.
