Coming Up in September … Music in the Park
Monday, September 1 12:00 – 5:00pm FREE
What better way to end the summer than spending the day outside listening to great music, visiting local artists at work and soaking up those last rays of summer sun, while taking in the majestic views of the North Shore mountains and the pristine Capilano Reservoir? Take the family and friends, your lawn chairs and pack a picnic lunch (or grab some great fresh, local treats from the food vendors). There will be free activities for the kids from 1:00-4:00pm and free artist demonstrations in many mediums from 12:00-5:00pm by a selection of talented local artists – they will also have artwork for sale.
