There will be no lack of events happening this weekend and whether you’ll be in Surrey, in the West End, or out at UBC you’ll be able to join in on some festival fun. The West End Fest, Wesbrook Village Festival, and Fleetwood Family Festival are all family-oriented and each will have their own bouncy castle and face-painting for the kids on top of unique community offerings:
