The August long weekend has crept up slowly and I’m almost in disbelief that July is coming to an end. While it was a bit of a grey month (with many soggy patches) hopefully things will pick up for August before scarves, sweaters, and back to school clothes in shop windows bring on the grim reality that summer is almost over.
With the sun finally shining, there’s so much going on this weekend that, aside from doing my main monthly event listings for August, I’ve decided to serve up a special long weekend event roundup:
Saturday, July 30

Mount Pleasant Smoking Sausage BBQ Cook-Off

Balkan Beats Extravaganza
Powell Street Festival
Burnaby Village Museum Farmers Market
Patio Summerfest at the River Market in New Westminster
