Victoria neighbourhoods hosting celebrations Saturday

Blanshard and Vic West communities having a party this weekend

Community pride will be shown in full force Saturday (May 12), as two neighbourhood groups hold their annual festivals.

Quadra Village Day, hosted by the Blanshard Community Association, runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Kings Road, between Quadra Street and Dowler Place. It includes a pancake breakfast, music and dance performances and a variety of kids’ activities.

The Vic West Community Association’s Vic West Fest runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the community centre, 521 Craigflower Rd., and Banfield Park. This “picnic in the park” is accompanied by music, games, food and displays.
