Ever heard of Lazy Fun? Come experience it firsthand on June 22nd when several community groups and businesses will be filling Victory Square Park with a variety of flowers, arts and crafts and edibles for the first annual Flower Festival and Urban Picnic. There will be live music from a selection of professional and student performers and food trucks to compliment the broad range of local restaurants and cafés that will be offering discounts to picnic goers. Picnickers are encouraged to either bring food from home or pick something up from nearby vendors.
The Flower Festival and Urban Picnic grew out of a collaboration with the Hastings Crossing Business Improvement Association and Olla Flowers, a social enterprise flower merchant located on Cambie Street. The Festival is an excuse to relax and enjoy a beautiful park that many feel has been underutilized for far too long, and chance to showcase some of the beautiful things that are grown, created or available for sale in the area. See the poster for more details.
So bring your loved ones and friends, lay down the blanket, grab some flowers and relax. It’s time for a big community picnic June 22nd from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
