Take part in a truly Vancouver-style party at Trout Lake Day held in John Hendry Park at 3300 Victoria Drive (at East 15th), June 23 from 2 to 6pm. The free event celebrates the start of summer at this well-loved East Van community centre.
The Trout Lake Day event line-up is as imaginative as one might expect from the Commercial Drive community. The fun includes attempting to break the world record for the number of folks holding hands around a lake (4pm), a synchronized swimming display, theatrical bird watching installations in trees (experience it to believe it) and live blue grass.
