There’s will be tons to do at the Kitsilano Community Centre’s Picnic in the Park this Sunday, August 11, 10 am – 3pm. If you usually use Sundays for grocery shopping, as many Kits families do, the annual community festival is being held at Connaught Park, so you can also explore and shop for local produce at the Kitsilano Farmers Market.
This annual community celebration includes carnival games, bouncy castles, face painting, community booths, concession stands and a charity barbeque. For $5 you can also purchase a wrist band to access the carnival rides. Although nervous at first, my daughter grew to love the flying chairs so much that she almost cried when it was time to leave last year. It was well worth the $5. Not to see her cry, that would be mean of me, but to see her delight on the rides.
