Babies and Leprechauns

Happy Spring!

On Saturday, March 14th, come celebrate the fecundity of the season with the Carnival Band, Navaro Franco, and many more great performers as we celebrate life at Birth Fest. A jointly sponsored event by Britannia Community Centre and Birth Lounge, this is a great chance for all you new, expecting, or hopeful parents to see exactly how our village can raise a child. The event is taking place at Britannia's Gym D from 10am 'till 3pm. Read more about it here.

Then on Sunday, we're taking to the streets once more for one of Vancouver's biggest parades, the crescendo of Celtic Fest, the St. Patrick's Day Parade! With over 2,000 participants and something like 300,000 spectators, you can't help but get into the festive spirit. The parade officially begins at 11am, and runs down Georgia from Broughton to Howe. Check out the Celtic Fest Site for more info.
