What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: … not much

Summer Sunset

The Tri Cities have burned themselves out in a wave of summer fun. It’s end-of-this and end-of-that this week, so grab the summery goodness before it becomes a memory. Invest in mothballs for your summer wardrobe. Don’t cry too much – school starts soon!

Don’t forget to check out The V3H Events Calendar.


What: Farmer’s Markets – Port Coquitlam and Port Moody
When:  Thursday, August 29 and Friday, August 30 from 3:00 – 7:00pm
Where: Leigh Square (map) and the Rec Centre (map)
The skinny: These two delightful markets will be winding down soon (Port Coquitlam – end of September; Port Moody – end of October), so get ‘em while you can. As I mentioned before, this is an excellent opportunity to stock up on honey, as well as a plethora of other local home-grown booty. Nothing says end of summer like the last Farmer’s Market.
