The weekend is here and with so many events happening throughout the month I’ve decided to focus only on those taking place over the next few days.
The Vancouver Aquarium is prepared to welcome a new baby beluga calf to the world as Aurora is on 24-hour delivery watch. You might even be able to catch it all on webcam. Her daughter Qila gave birth to Tiqa last June.
The Kitsilano Farmers Market kicks off its 2009 season this weekend.
There is a Beach BBQ Tweetup on Saturday at Spanish Banks.
There’s another Tweetup with Michael Pollan this weekend at the UBC Farm.
Latincouver is launching Saturday June 6th and tickets are still available for the celebration (@latincouver on Twitter)
Hats off Day, where local merchants take their ‘hats off’ for the community is Saturday on Hastings in Burnaby. There will be a street party, activities for the family, and a parade.
Collingwood Days 2009 begin with a parade (at Joyce & Kingsway) this Saturday.
Saturday is also the 9th annual Vancouver landfill open house. It’s a free event where you can get a guided tour the landfill and learn about how the system works.
This Sunday, June 7th, is National Cancer Survivor Day.
The HSBC Childrun for the BC Childrens Hospital is also Sunday June 7th at 9:00am.
This isn’t happening until next Friday but it’s worth mentioning that Megaphone Magazine is hosting an anniversary event. I had the pleasure of contributing to one of their recent issues and discovering the brilliance of their publication. The celebration will take place at the Interurban Gallery on E. Hastings.
Last but not least, June will be a big month for Miss604 contests and the first, which will have a Father’s Day theme, is set to be announced on Tuesday morning.
