This Saturday, Canucks Autism Network (CAN) is hosting a family fun event open to the public. With the outdoor event being hosted by Jody Vance from Breakfast Television, you can participate in the fun festivities while being entertained by the ODDS band.
You can hang out with representatives from the Seattle Seahawks, the Vancouver Canucks, the BC Lions and the Vancouver Canadians. You definitely don’t want to miss out on a photo booth opportunity with special guests, Kirk McLean and Dave Babych.
After boogie-ing down in a mascot dance-off,(no longer happening) you can chow down on food provided by Moderne Burger and Dougie Dogs (minimum donation for food). Last but not least, make sure you’re around for the lighting of the Olympic Cauldron (we aren’t allowed to call it the Olympic Cauldron). If you’re there, make sure to find Vancity Buzz’s Amie so she can take a photo of you!
You can add any of these points: Participate in the awareness walk, have a caricature done, or get your photo with Canucks FIN to replace the mascot dance off part.
