Free and cheap family friendly events this weekend March 8-10, 2019

Hey, it’s March and it’s snowing (sob). Despite the wacky weather, there is still lots to do this weekend. Sit under the Blossom installation at Metropolis at Metrotown if you just can’t wait for the real thing. Check out a free performance with Bobs & Lolo at the local firehall or head to ArtStarts and explore art at their downtown gallery. If you’re up for some testosterone-fueled fun, the Monster Jam is in town. Yaletown will be all lit up on Friday night, and there’s a clothing swap for moms with little kids hosted by Buddings Daycare.
