vancouver: kid & family friendly events

Summer means time off from school – daycamps, field trips and lots of fun. It also means outdoor concerts, and movies under the stars – and we’ve added a few of those into our event calendar! This weekend also brings you the Berrybeat Festival in Abbotsford and the annual Pioneer Fair at Historic Stewart Farm in Surrey. There are other fun events as well but overall it’s a quieter weekend, so why not head out with the family? Of course, you can also ride bikes on the sea wall, go explore local parks and forests, or head over to the beach! Whatever you do, stay hydrated and have fun. MORE
