Mark your calendars for a fun, family-friendly event in our Kitsilano neighbourhood this Saturday, February 3rd, from 10am till 5pm – it’s the annual Winter Wander at Vanier Park.

Tickets cost just $5 per person (kids aged 5 and under are free), and it will include admission to the Museum of Vancouver, the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, the Vancouver Maritime Museum, the City of Vancouver Archives, and the Vancouver Academy of Music. Tickets will be available on the day of the event at the Museum of Vancouver, the Space Centre, and the Vancouver Maritime Museum.

Roving performances from Bard on the Beach and the Vancouver Academy of Music will entertain, while food trucks will provide plenty of snacks. There will be a chance to win some great prizes as well. If you can, try to walk or bike over as this event is always busy and there will only be limited parking spots.
