There’s a lot going on in and around the V3H this Saturday and Sunday. It promises to be an action-packed couple of days in our neck of the woods. So if you’re looking for something to do this weekend you’ve come to the right place. 🙂

The Suter Brook Village Country Fair kicks off the weekend on Saturday. The fair runs from 11am until 3pm in Suter Brook Village, at the corner of Murray St. and Ioco Rd. in Port Moody [map]. Admission is free, although donations are encouraged and proceeds will go to the SHARE Society. There will be a barbecue, pony rides, a bouncy castle, giant slide, and more.

The 20th Annual Teddy Bear Picnic will happen on Sunday June 14 in Coquitlam. The Teddy Bear Picnic Parade starts at 10am, and runs from from Coquitlam Centre to Town Centre Park. The picnic itself runs from 11am until 4:30 pm at Town Centre Park. Admission is $3.00 per person (children under 3 are free) and wrist bands can be purchased in advance at City Centre Aquatic Complex, Chimo Pool, Pinetree Community Centre and Club Aviva. There are tons of activities for the kids, some great performers, and the ever popular teddy bear clinic. So remember to bring your stuffed friend along for the day!

A little farther afield a celebration marking the completion of the Golden Ears Bridge, which links Pitt Meadows and Langley, will take place on Sunday June 14. The bridge will open to traffic on June 16, so this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get out and play on the bridge deck. A fun run, sponsored by the Running Room, is going from 8:30 to 10:00. Entry fee is $15, and you can sign up at any Running Room location. Once the runners are clear the bridge deck will open to pedestrians from 11am until 4pm. There are some great performers slated including Rick Tippe, Dehli 2 Dublin and the Langley Ukelele Ensemble. Some other highlights include the ribbon cutting at 1pm and a variety of contests for the chance to win an “I Made History on the Golden Ears Bridge” button. There is no parking, so visitors are asked to park in one of several free lots and ride one of the shuttles to the bridge.

There are clearly no shortage of options for family fun this weekend, so get out and enjoy yourself!
