Get in on the Pokemon Go craze! Did you know that New Westminster’s iconic landmarks and buildings are PokeStops? Join New West tour guides as they uncover the history behind many of the popular PokeStops in Downtown New West, including the CPR Railway Station, the Great Fire of 1898 mosaic, and Ab Ovo – The Fertile Nest. Everyone’s welcome, from expert high-level trainers to total newbs who’ve never played the game and don’t even have the app!

Are you ready for straight-up princess adulation? Kids from 2-10 will lose their cute little minds over this “princessapalooza” that will feature a play date and live performance with five fairy-tale princesses, including everybody’s favourites, Elsa and Anna!

All proceeds go to the White Rock Firefighters in support of building an all-abilities park in the community.
