It is time for a long weekend! Take the family to White Rock for the Sea Festival, or to Tsawwassen Sun Festival.

The annual Pride Parade takes over the streets in Downtown Vancouver, and Abbotsford Agrifair offers a whole weekend of country fun. Pirates are occupying Kilby, fairies are hiding at The Sharing Farm in Richmond, and the fur brigades are hanging out in Fort Langley. There’s lots to do, so get out and have fun! MORE

farm to table adventures at a local dairy farm

While some of us may have grown up on a farm, our urban living kids do not have the hands on opportunities to interact with their food like we did. We plant in our community garden plot and chat with the farmers at the markets, but we wanted to do more.

sounds of summer

Summer is the season for spending time outdoors – and who would want to sit at home on gorgeous summer days like these? One of our summer favourites are the various outdoor concerts that pop up all over town!
