This Saturday it’s all about the Party for the Planet in Surrey (sponsored by Miss604). It will combine the annual Earth Day festival — with free admission, concerts, activities for families — with an open house for the new Surrey City Hall. On top of that, there’s something for everyone this weekend as the event list filled up rather quickly with a few remaining Cherry Blossom Festival activities, an open house on Granville Island, markets to visit, tulip festivals, and art shows to attend.
