Kid-Friendly Vancouver Fun for Family Day

If you’re looking for kid-friendly Vancouver fun any day of the year, you can’t beat children’s entertainer Will Stroet and his Backyard Band. He’s one of our favourites, and for good reason, with his music that’s catchy and fun for all ages (and not annoying, we promise). The group will perform a high-energy bilingual at the Roundhouse for Family Day. The show features lots of movement and sing-along choruses, with music from Will’s latest album Just Imagine, and the French version Imagine. Tickets are $12 per person, or $40 for the whole family.
