The rain is slowly subsiding. Patios are beginning to spill along the sidewalks. The evenings are getting noticeably longer. This is the time of year we’ve been waiting for, and there are loads of fun, local events happening as well.
Here’s just a sample of what we’ve got to look forward to next month in our Kitsilano neighbourhood.
Kits Beach Volleyball – Tuesday, May 1st
Beach volleyball hosted by the Kitsilano Community Centre starts tonight from 6:30pm till 8:30pm. This is a co-ed game for beginner to intermediate level players. Participants should have an understanding of the rules and have basic skills (bump, set, spike, and serve). Meet at the south volleyball courts at Kits Beach. $5.71 for drop-ins, space permitting.
Kitsilano Farmers Market – Sunday, May 6th
It’s back – everyone’s favourite outdoor grocery store. Hit it early, every Sunday, from 10am till 2pm at the Kitsilano Community Centre parking lot, from May till October.
