Celebrate Canada Day

The centre will be closed on Friday, July 1 for Canada Day but there are all kinds of free activities and events for the whole family planned down on the waterfront.

Celebrations kick off at 8 a.m. with a 10 km walk/jog/run and carry on throughout the day with a children’s sandcastle event, kite flying display and live entertainment.

The evening will wind up with fireworks over Semiahmoo Bay at dusk. A schedule of events is available for pick up at all three White Rock Leisure Centres.

Tomorrow (Wednesday, June 29) is the final Kent Street Wednesday dance of the season.

Come out and have one final spin around the dance floor until September!

Join Gracie & the Guys live on stage. All those 50+, couples and singles, are welcome. Doors open at 7 p.m., with dancing from 7:30-10:30. Light refreshments served midway.

Tickets are available at the door. Wednesday night dances resume Sept. 7.

Need a little mystery in your life?

Why not join us on the Farm House Mystery Tour July 12; this is a perfect day for those who enjoy nature and its produce.

Or, experience the “biggest rush of the Gold Rush Trail!” Ride a gondola as you take in a roaring river below. Explore the site that Simon Fraser described as “the gates of hell” on the July 6 excursion to Hell’s Gate Airtram.

The White Rock Leisure Services mini-bus picks up at the three community centres in White Rock.
