vancouver: kid & family friendly events

It’s going to be a fun weekend. There’s the Vancouver International Auto Show for all the car lovers – this year you can even check out Scooby Doo’s Mystery Machine! It’s also the super fun Healthy Family Expo, and Creative Stitches invites all crafters to check them out. There’s a superhero training bootcamp for all the future heroes; and the Battle of the Badges sends some real life heroes (police and firemen) onto the hockey rink to play for charity. And since it’s spring there are many opportunities to get outdoors and walk the trails in daylight (or in the dark). Easter events have started, and we’ve rounded them all up for you here. Don’t forget to turn off the lights for the Earth Hour on Saturday – it’s a great chance to spend some screen-free family time and talk about the environment with the kids. MORE

Spring is here! The days are finally longer than the nights, and the weather has definitely been co-operating. It’s time to head outdoors; to smell the cherry blossoms, to start gardening, or to walk the seawall. Check out World Water Day celebrations around (and outside) town, and explore the watery world of beavers. Join the Spring Fling at Surrey Nature Centre, or track wolves and coyotes around Lynn Canyon. Some spring break events are going on through the weekend as well, so check our listing here. MORE
