Last night the City of Surrey kicked off their two-day Party for the Planet, the largest Earth Day celebration in Western Canada. With a focus on free family fun, this major city event with an eco-friendly twist has already attracted thousands.
The Energy Dance Tent was particularly popular with live DJs spinning and dance groups showing off their moves.
The smell of mini donuts, popcorn, hot dogs, and more wafted through the open air last night with more food carts and options available today. You can also stop by the Surrey Food Bank tent and sign up to volunteer at the BC Summer Games which are taking place in Surrey this July.
The bike-powered main stage will focus on family entertainment (Bobs and Lolo, Backyardigans) but last night Raghav, The Boom Booms, and Down With Webster rocked it out.
Take transit right to the Surrey Central SkyTrain station or bus loop and there’s a free, secure bike valet available on-site.
Kids can explore the straw maze, learn about local recycling and environmental initiatives, play games, meet mascots, and dance their hearts out. The Party for the Planet is entirely free to attend. Things wrap up at 5:00pm today.
