This Sunday, Richmond Olympic Oval is hosting an end-of-summer party on its waterfront plaza facing the Fraser River.
The public is invited to enjoy free live musical performances from up-and-coming Vancouver artists Jordan Klassen and Kytami before the free outdoor viewing of Disney’s Frozen on a 40-foot screen.
The celebration begins at 4 p.m. with lots of free family fun activities as the finale for Richmond’s Summer PlayDays program.
Fast rising Western Canadian singer-songwriter Jordan Klassen heads the entertainment line-up with a performance at 7 p.m. Following the release of his nationally-acclaimed full-length debut Repentance, Jordan’s catchy folk-pop ballads are gaining critical and popular acclaim.
“Violinistextremist” Kytami also hits the stage at 5:45 p.m. With her fusion of classical violin and fiddle mixed with modern hip-hop, Kytami’s award-winning musical style will quickly get you on your feet dancing.
The evening wraps up with the screening of Frozen on a 40-foot screen at 8:15 p.m., proceeded by a “Let It Go” sing-along with The Frozen Queen.
Throughout the evening, other performers include jugglers Mike Battie and Yuki Ueda, the Phase 3 Steel Drummers and plenty of fun for the kids including bouncy castles, the Richmond Art Gallery Truck, Tumble Bus, Cartwheels Inc. gymnastics zone, ping pong and more.
Delicious food will be available including BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, Asian cuisine from All About the Grill, Cravings Kettle Corn, Tin Lizzy Donuts and Rocky Point Ice Cream.
