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.
