Playland Open Extended Days in September

Comments 76 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The 104th annual Fair at the PNE closed out the season with an 8% increase in visitors this year and now Playland will welcome even more guests with extended days this month. Playland’s decision comes after an overwhelming response from parents who are looking for ways to keep kids entertained while the BC Teachers’ Strike continues.
