Community pride will be shown in full force Saturday (May 12), as two neighbourhood groups hold their annual festivals.
Quadra Village Day, hosted by the Blanshard Community Association, runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Kings Road, between Quadra Street and Dowler Place. It includes a pancake breakfast, music and dance performances and a variety of kids’ activities.
The Vic West Community Association’s Vic West Fest runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the community centre, 521 Craigflower Rd., and Banfield Park. This “picnic in the park” is accompanied by music, games, food and displays.
