ValleyFest in Lynn Valley is North Vancouver’s own community celebration site for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
The Torch Relay will make its way to the Lynn Valley Centre on day 104, February 10th with music and entertainment at 11:00am and the torch ceremony from 1:00pm – 3:00pm.
From February 12th until the 28th their daily activities roster is rather full and they’ll have a big screen so you can watch Olympic coverage from the Lynn Valley Centre plaza from 10:00am.
Special theme days at ValleyFest include Local Heroes, Youth night, Paralympics profile, First Nations, Seniors, and Mount Seymour showcase.
The Discovery Zone will have workshops with the likes of “Molly the Mountaineer”, a North Shore Museum and Archives display, Build a Bug lantern activity, as well as arts & library activities.
The Games Zone will have “Kurling” hosted by Curling BC and the North Shore Winter Club, Biathlon demos, speedskating and ski jumping demos, hockey shots, and Wii sports.
Concerts include performances by Dustin Bentall, Ready Steady Go, The Black Bear Band, Bobs & Lolo and more.
It looks like they have a nice, FREE, local celebration planned for the community and if you’d like to join them your best bet to get over there is by bus. You can take the 228 or 229 from Lonsdale / Seabus, 255 from West Vancouver or 210 from Burrard.
You can find more information, show times and maps on the ValleyFest website.
