Trout Lake Day is a free family festival that is coming up June 24th. Everyone is invited to the park for music, games, art workshops, and a picnic.
The event will run from 2:00pm to 6:00pm at John Hendry Park, surrounding Trout Lake, which is located at 3300 Victoria Drive (at East 15th) in East Vancouver. There will be free parking but you can take transit or ride your bike to the event.
Attendees will also be invited to join in on a world record for the most people holding hands in a circle around the lake. An estimated 1,500 people will be needed for this project, dubbed “Circle of Trout”, in order to break the world record.
Trout Lake Day is hosted by the Grandview Community Centre Association/Trout Lake and the Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House.
If you can’t make it out for Trout Lake Day, check out their “International Nap Day” event this Sunday, June 17th. Show up from 3:00pm to 4:00pm for a nap in the park. There will even be a prize for “Best Napper”.
John Hendry Park and Trout Lake were actually the first entries in my Metro Vancouver Park Series that began in 2008.
