Christmas 2011 is now but a memory. And with that behind us, we can focus on the next big event: New Year’s Eve. 2012 is almost here, and you don’t need to head downtown for a little bit of fun as we bid farewell to the old and welcome the new. Here are some local […]



Season’s Greetings from TheV3H


Merry Christmas theV3H Port Moody Coquitlam Port Coquitlam

Christmas is almost here, as my six-year-old reminds me daily. Every morning she rips another ring off the paper chain she brought home from school on December 1, meaning we’re one day closer to the Big Event. As the chain gets shorter, her excitement level gets higher. Her three-year-old brother’s does, too. They are so […]

Bike Commuting and Christmas

We’re getting to that point in the holiday season when some of us are already partied out, the festive fistfights over a mall parking spot pick up, and it’s really really dark out. But luckily, some of us out there are still bringing the holiday cheer. We always take the opportunity to link to ourselves, […]

Lantern Festival to Celebrate Solstice in Port Moody


Solstice Lantern Festival 2011 Port Moody

Joyelle Brandt and Melanie Montgomery wanted to attend a Solstice celebration, but they didn’t want to drive all the way into downtown Vancouver. And who can blame them?

New Mayor Mike Clay told a great story about Joe asking some kids on bikes why they weren’t using the skateboard […]
