Across the world, various events are held to show support for Earth Day and environmental protection, and the Lower Mainland is no different.
Presented by TD, Metro Vancouver’s largest annual Earth Day celebration Party for the Planet returns to Surrey Civic Plaza on Saturday, April 13 and will feature a new Live Green World, offering environmental workshops, a sustainable marketplace, an acoustic concert series, as well as local vendors. The event offers free admission and fun activities for all ages.
Live music will be heard throughout the event, and soulful singer Colin Bullock, indie pop duo Harlequin Gold, and children’s performers Bobs & Lolo will be performing on the Main Stage, located inside the Council Chambers.
They will also be offering 1,000 complimentary succulents to attendees at 2:30 pm after the opening ceremonies, so make sure you get in early! The popular native tree and plant sale returns, with trees as cheap as $20, and plants from $2-4. What a steal.
The Adventure Zone is located on University Drive and features a zip line, rock climbing wall, road hockey, and food trucks from around the world. Kids will have a great time learning about environmental initiatives with educational booths and crafts — and they may even get to meet and greet with Big Bird and Elmo! Civic Plaza will feature a variety of vendors, an Enviro Bungee, Whitecaps Cruiser, and more.
