Hat Off Day in Burnaby Heights is the event of the year for local merchants as they take their “hats off” to the community members, shoppers, and residents of the area in celebration of their patronage. This day-long street party that stretches as far as the eye can see along Hastings as up to a hundred thousand people stroll along and enjoy free samples, barbecue, activities for kids, dancing, entertainment, and much more.

On top of sidewalk sales and restaurants serving up their best fares at the street party there is also a Show and Shine up toward Gamma and live music playing every few blocks. The theme for Hats off Day this year is “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” so there are bound to be some great costumes and craft opportunities.
