B.C.’s inaugural Family Day long weekend is February 9 – 11, 2013 (although why it’s not the same weekend as the other provinces is still perplexing). Families across Vancouver can take the time to attend special events and activities across the region. Here are three events taking place in Vancouver on Family Day.
