Party for the Planet 2013

Earth Day ยป A City-sponsored event geared for families and young people

This is how the City of Surrey celebrates Earth Day: an event with concerts, activities and tents for community organizations. Plus food trucks.

As one wag put it on Twitter:

#Surrey celebrates #earthday... By running countless generators and Diesel engines to power their unnecessary event...

Most of the hype was reserved for the musical acts, but when I wandered by around 2:30 pm (just after the rain), the biggest lineups were to see some people dressed as rabbits on a TV show, and an activity where kids could go into an inflated clear plastic ball and float over a pool.

Clearly a show for families!

Introduction

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
