Seven family friendly events in Vancouver this weekend, February 2 & 3 2019

January is finally over! Daffodils and crocuses are popping up all over, and snowdrops are old news. Time to celebrate! We’ve got ideas for family and kid friendly fun this weekend in Vancouver. It’s the final weekend of Dine Out Vancouver and the Hot Chocolate Fest is going strong with steaming cups of glorious goodness. Looking for a toe-tapping live performance? Head to the Annie, the musical, at Michael J Fox. Feeling like a bit of culture? Wander around Vanier Park and visit five venues for only $5. On the North Shore, get artsy with the kids at Polygon Gallery. PS: Movies are an option too! Take in a $2.99 screening of Smallfoot as part of Cineplex’s Family Favourite Movie screenings or take in an all ages free screening  of Kirikou and the Sorceress for Black History Month!

Fog horns, seagulls, and the sound of rolling waves can be a source of inspiration to both painters and photographers alike. Just as local camera enthusiast Rod Logan chronicled the passing of 10,000 Ships through the local harbour, kids and parents will be using water soluble paints and colouring crayons to document the wonderful view of the seaside landscape. Fun for the whole family whether you’re aged 3 or 93.
