Welcome to yoyomama’s weekend guide! Your go-to list of family friendly fun things to do with kids in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. It’s also easy to get these event listings in our handy new app, OnTheGoKids, which takes our weekend guide and makes it mobile!

The summer isn’t over yet! It looks like it will be yet another sunny weekend, and there’s a lot going on around town to celebrate the sun. Bring your family’s princess to a proper Princess Party in White Rock, or join the fun at North Vancouver Children’s Festival. Take a day trip to Kilby Kids Festival, or drive to Langley for the colourful International Festival. This weekend there are also ponies, corn, blues and jazz, wooden boats, and garlic to enjoy, and when the sun finally goes down you can join one of the free outdoor movie screenings with the whole family.
