With Saturday’s forecast calling for a 60% chance of showers, organizers have decided to change the date of the event to the next day.

The Big Picnic is an afternoon event that calls Vancouverites and visitors to the Queen Elizabeth Park.

Attendees are invited to bring their own food, although they’ll also have access to some of the city’s most popular food trucks on-site as well.
