A family-oriented party to celebrate Fernwood, Sunday September 13

>> Laurie Rubin

The 8th Annual Vining Street Party on the Plaza (VS POP) will be held on Sunday, September 13th from 12pm–9pm. One and all are invited to celebrate our vibrant Fernwoodian Community and to raise funds for community projects. For eight years and counting, Vining Street residents host a family-oriented party for the neighbourhood to enjoy.

Join the community, with special guests Puppets for Peace (puppetsforpeace.org), for many activities including a vendor market, a huge Silent Auction, BBQ, live music and performances, magicians, clowns, stilt walkers, hula hoopers, face painting, bean bag U:launcher, and other games for all ages. You can also watch renowned children’s music performer Rick Scott and a Puppets for Peace Parade and activities.

All the proceeds from VS POP 2015 will support the Learning Disabilities Association of BC and Puppets for Peace, an intergenerational celebration of peace through the art of puppetry. VS POP is a volunteer-driven event with no outside funding. Please come to enjoy the eclectic lineup of activities and performers!VSVS
