On Friday and Saturday only, for $35 you can experience a one of a kind jamming partie under the bridge; complete with Vancouver’s best food trucks, live DJ and local beverages.
The Kids Zone will keep your kids entertained with mask and music making. Ben LaBarouette the clown, singing, music, and stilt walkers will be sure to make lasting memories for you and your family.
Not only will you get to savour delectable foods, but also original local art.
