Blueberries are now in season and you can head out to local growers to pick up baskets full of these plump, sweet, juicy, and healthy morsels grown right in BC. This Saturday, Surrey’s Cloverdale community will be hosting their 9th annual Blueberry Festival in celebration of this boisterous berry that can be paired with salads and ice cream or devoured by the handful on their own.
On Saturday, August 4, 2012 from 9:00am to 5:00pm there will be a variety of events in downtown Cloverdale, at Clover Village Square, the Surrey Museum Plaza, and more. Festivities will take place between 176th and 180th Streets, and 60th Ave and Highway 10 and a free shuttle bus will run from venue to venue.
Events include the Surrey Show and Shine, a blueberry pie eating contest, BMX demos, pancake breakfasts and BBQs, an art festival at the museum’s plaza, an antique tractor pull and more. The Cloverdale Blueberry Festival is absolutely free to attend but you’ll want to bring your wallet so that you can get your fill of sweet summer bites.
