Weekend Events Link Fest, End of August 2009

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

With the smell of the PNE‘s mini donuts wafting through the air and with kiddies scooping up all the latest Trapper KeepersTM, you just know summer is coming to an end. On the bright side, there’s still so much going on around town that consist of both indoor and outdoor activities. Here is this week’s Link Fest for activities this weekend.

      There’s also a Tweetup at the Two Parrots pub prior to the photowalk. That’s where a lot of the photowalk people will be starting from.

      It’s so funny that mini-donuts are associated with the PNE in Vancouver. We have the same association here in Toronto for our CNE, they were even talking about it on the radio this morning.

      What is the lucky charity of choice for Twestival Vancouver?
