What’s Up in the Tri-Cities: Concerts, Seminars, and Performances!

John Furlong Maria in the Shower in Port Coquitlam

We have quite a few concerts and performing events this week in the Tri-Cities but we also have several workshops and seminars if you’d like to keep in on the serious side. You could take the kids to Jack and the Beanstalk, learn how to make a fascinator at Fascinator Workshop (probably not something the menfolk will be interested in!) and take the whole family to A Tribute to Elvis. Enjoy!
