Surrey Winterfest returns for the fourth year next month for a full day of free family fun at Central City. John and I have been covering Winterfest since it first started in 2008 and it’s been fun to watch it grow — especially last year when it transformed into one of the most successful Vancouver 2010 celebration sites. This year the kids activities, food vendors, and maybe even the stilt walkers return Saturday, February 26th, 2011.
