Events for Father’s Day Weekend


This Sunday June 21 is Father’s Day. And there are lots of fun events going on in and around the V3H to celebrate Dad, or just give us all a chance to get out and have some fun to kick off summer.

June 19-21 is BC’s Family Fishing Weekend. A local event will be running on Saturday from 9am to 2pm at Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam in honour of the weekend. The event is free, and no fishing licenses are required to participate. In addition to fishing in the fully-stocked lake, there will be lessons, displays, and prizes, as well as hot dogs and beverages.

On Sunday the Port Moody Station Museum will be running ‘A Tie for Dad‘ between 11am and 4pm. Dads can enjoy free cookies and lemonade, and there will be crafts and activities for the kids. For $10 you can have your name stamped on a copper plaque and attached to a railroad tie. The museum is located at 2734 Murray Street in Port Moody.

On June 21 a Saint-Jean-Baptiste celebration will be held at Mackin Park in Maillardville. Saint-Jean-Baptiste, or St. John the Baptist, is the patron saint of French Canada and celebrations are held on or around his feast day of June 24. The event in Coquitlam is free. Bring a picnic or enjoy hot dogs, dessert, games, face painting, and music. The Olympic mascots Sumi, Miga, and Quatchi are even rumoured to be stopping by. It’s a great chance to start the season with a little joie de vivre!
