B.C. Days in Mission celebrated Aug. 4-5

Two days of fun and family activities organized by Mission Communities in Bloom Society

The Mission Communities in Bloom Society is rolling out two family events in the first weekend of August in recognition of B.C. Days in Mission.

A self-guided driving tour of Mission takes place Aug. 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and features 10 heritage, garden and environmental sites. Admission to all sites is free, and a map and passport will be provided. Bus service will also be available for $5.

The tour will conclude in Fraser River Heritage Park — with lunch provided by the Blackberry Kitchen — where one participant will win a $250 shopping spree at Fraser Valley Building Supplies.

The following day from noon until 4 p.m., there will be children’s activities, music, guided harbour walking tour and more at Mission Harbour’s Spirit Square in the Jack Poole Harbourside Park. A burger and beer night at the Captain’s Cabin Pub follows from  4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

B.C. Days were proclaimed by municipal politicians at the June 17 council meeting.
