5 Family-Friendly Weekend Events In Metro Vancouver:
Sensory Friendly Mornings are inclusive events for individuals and families with neurodiverse or accessibility needs. Guests can enjoy Science World exhibits in a comfortable, welcoming and less crowded environment. Wherever possible, exhibits will have adjusted operations and lowered volume levels from 8am to 10am.
There will be an OMNIMAX open-house from 10am–10:30am before the film begins. This is a great opportunity for guests, to view the theatre screen, check out the seating and become familiar with the potential lighting and sound levels—before deciding to purchase a ticket to the film.
The next South Surrey White Rock Repair Cafe is January 26th at Alexandra Neighbourhood House.
Join them at 2pm for a free kids art activity, hosted by a local artist. They’ll be making art out of only recycled materials. Reccomended for ages 3-9, plus all who are still kids at heart.
Stop by the Repair Cafe at 2pm for the kids art activity, and stay for a knife sharpening demo at 3pm with local expert, bring an item between 1pm-4pm to get it assessed by and fix it with a local volunteer Fixer, or stop by for good conversation with your community members over coffee.
