Lantern Festival 2015

Lantern Festival 2015!


On a beautiful evening in early October,


In and around the community centre,


Families gathered for an evening of fun,


Games and activities for everyone!


Donations were made


For the Richmond Food Bank


Some got Balloons,


and others, Face Paint!


Some people went Bowling,


and drums were played,


shadows,


wishes,


and lanterns were made!


Nigel rode in


And we all stopped to stare,


As he contact juggled


In the cool night air!


Then it was time,


The lanterns were lit,


we went on parade


The night was a hit!



To all those who took part and volunteers too,
For such a great evening, 
we'd like to THANK YOU!!!

See you again next year!

Don’t Miss Summer West Fest!

Every year, the West Richmond Community Centre hosts West Fest; an end-of-summer free family event held on the last Wednesday in August. This western-themed event includes live entertainment, face painting, bouncy castles, pie eating contents, relays, BBQ concession, and a photo booth! At dusk, the crowd settles in for a screening of a feature-length film – this year we’ll be showing Big Hero 6. It’s a lovely way to spend a late summer evening.




The grass may be brown, but we are thinking green for this event! Arrive by bike or on foot to be entered into a draw, and refill your reusable water bottles at Save-On-Foods’ water refilling station!

EVENT DETAILS:
Date: Wednesday August 26
Time: 6:30-10:30pm (movie begins at dusk)
Location: West Richmond Community Centre (9180 No. 1 Road)
This event is free. BBQ concession available.
For more information, call the front desk at 604-238-8400

different magnets we play with.
