Comments 15 by Rebecca Bollwitt

All season long, the waterfront plaza at the Richmond Olympic Oval has been the site of free family fun, hosting Summer PlayDays with outdoor games, fitness classes, live music, boot camps and BBQs. The culmination of this fun activity series will be on August 31st with more live music, great food, a free screening of Disney’s latest animated classic, Frozen, and a free concert with Jordan Klassen and Kytami.


What: Summer PlayDays: Movie Night and Concert
Where: Richmond Olympic Oval Plaza, 6111 River Road

Bring a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the shows and space is limited so be sure to get there early. The Richmond Food Bank Society will be on site and the first 200 people to visit their booth will receive a coupon for a free bag of popcorn. Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or make a cash donation.

Throughout the evening, performers include jugglers Mike Battie and Yuki Ueda and there will be plenty of fun for the kids including bouncy castles, the Richmond Art Truck, Tumble Bus, Cartwheels Inc. gymnastics zone, ping pong and more.

Delicious food will be available including BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, Asian cuisine from All About the Grill, Cravings Kettle Corn, Tin Lizzy Donuts and Rocky Point Ice Cream.
