A long weekend! What a wonderful idea! Do you have plans already? If not, we’ve got lots of great ideas for you! The Cloverdale Rodeo is on, including the Thursday night bed races just before the rodeo! Festival Ha’Rikud is full of music and dance; there’s a May Day parade in Fort Langley; and you can have a royal audience with Queen Victoria at Historic Stewart Farm. There are movies, farmers’ markets and school spring fairs to check out too. And the weather’s supposed to be lovely so we can all spend lots of time outdoors, whether that’s on the beach, in the forest or in the backyard. MORE
