Hats Off Day is a community celebration along East Hastings where local merchants tip their hats to those who support their business.

Organized by the Burnaby Heights Merchants Association, it starts off with a parade and is followed by hours of activities, food, games, shopping, a show & shine, and entertainment. While closed to traffic, public can explore this free festival on East Hastings (between Boundary and Gamma) from 9:00am until 3:00pm, Saturday, June 4th.

Surrounding the iconic “Heights” – formerly “Helens” – landmark neon sign, Burnaby Heights is a close-knit community filled with a rich history of urban and residential development.

Explore the Heights any time and be sure to mark Hats Off Day into your summer calendar. Volunteer opportunities are still available as well. Follow the Burnaby Heights Merchants Association on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube.

    One of the highlights of our year! I wrote about it a couple years ago: Community Spirit in Burnaby Heights. Mostly about food, but you get the idea.
