Still Summer in the V3H


August might be drawing to a close, but it’s still summertime here in the V3H. There are still plenty of chances to get out and enjoy it while it lasts, too. Especially because with a late return to school this year the kids have a whole extra week of vacation time to enjoy.

On Thursday August 27 there will be a heritage walk taking in the Southside of Port Coquitlam. The walk is free, and is presented by the Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society. The walk leaves at 6pm from the Terry Fox Library [map], rain or shine. Register by calling 604.927.7611 or email

This Friday is your last chance to get out and enjoy Cinema Under the Stars in Port Coquitlam. They planned to show Kung Fu Panda at Robert Hope Park [map] last week, but due to rain it was rescheduled to August 28. The show starts at 8:30pm, and a showing of ThE MeSsY LiE, a new film, will precede it as a trailer. So bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy the show!

This weekend is also your last chance to check out Live @ Leigh Square and Music in the Park in Port Coquitlam. Live @ Leigh Square is finishing the season in style with the Beanstalk Folk Fest from 12 – 9pm on August 29. It’s a free local festival intended to bring people together, create friendships and promote live music. How can you go wrong?

This Sunday, August 30 is the final date in Pacific Coast Terminal’s Summer Sundays concerts in Rocky Point Park. Vancouver band Brickhouse will be playing. The show is free, and promises to be great.

Fresh, local food is still going strong at this time of year, and the Coquitlam Farmer’s Market has opened a new pocket market in Anmore. Every Saturday until September 26 the market will be offering a selection of local produce and baked goods from 10am to 2pm in Anmore’s Village Hall parking lot [map]. Farmer’s markets seem to have really taken off in the Tri-Cities this year. It’s a great way to get in touch with your food and meet your neighbours, just remember to bring cash and your reusable bags.

The days are already getting shorter, but autumn is still a month away. I’m doing my best to soak up the last of the warm days while they’re here. I hope that you get a chance to do the same.
