As the cherry blossoms fill our streets, parks, and yards with pink confetti, March arrives with free admission for kids at VanDusen Garden, Spring Break, dance celebrations, fashion, festivals and CelticFest fun. As always this list is updated several times a week so if you have an event to add, simply send it in for a free listing.
