Every Friday we update on what's on this weekend around The Semiahmoo Peninsula

 

 

April 20-22, 2018

 

For many thousands of years, Vaisakhi has been the time when farmers have put their sickles to harvest and celebrated the coming of a new year. Since 1699, the Sikhs have had a further reason to celebrate at this time of the year. Now Vaisakhi is celebrated with even more energy, pomp and fanfare. It has become a holy day to mark the birth of the Khalsa fraternity. And so 300+ years on, this tradition continues with much gaiety, vigour and enthusiasm. Sikhs worldwide will spend much time remembering this most important day in their religious calendar – the day the Khalsa was created.

Vaisakhi Parade, which begins at the Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar Temple (12885 85th Avenue in Surrey). The parade, which features a variety of floats, community groups, live music and dancers and performers travels along 124th Street, turns left onto 75th Avenue, continues on 76th Avenue, onto 128th Street, then back to the Temple.

I hope that you'll wander over to the orchard this Saturday--so much happening in Ocean Park. The Seed Library at the OP Library, the Community Garage Sale, and 3 events in one at the orchard.

 

1st ANNUAL OCEAN PARK
GARAGE SALE
As a resident + Realtor® in Ocean Park, I am always looking for ways to help our community. Traditions are a great way to keep a community connected and strong. So, what’s better than to start something that is annual, helps our neighbours + clears the clutter? Let’s do some SPRING CLEANING!

Were you thinking of having a garage sale this Spring? Register today and let us do the rest of the work. We will do all the local advertising + social media, we will create maps with a legend and we will put up the signs for you!

All you have to do is register your address with us (for the map + legend), gather all the items you would like to sell, set up at your home on the day and we will take care of the rest.

Maps showing the locations of each home participating will be made and distributed to customers in front of Ethical Addictions on April 21st from 8:30am – 12pm.

Sale maps will also be dropped off to each home participating on the sale day. Please encourage customers without a map to take one so that all sales have a chance to attract customers, not only the sales in higher traffic areas.
