Teddy Bears Picnic
11:30 am - 3:00 pm
4011 Moncton Street
If you go down to Steveston Park on Saturday, August 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., you are in for a big surprise. All teddy bears are invited to bring their best human friend, a lunch and a picnic blanket to Steveston Park, and join in bear-themed festivities at the Teddy Bears Picnic.
Bear fun will include games, teddy bear medical checkups, paw reading fortune telling and face painting. Frontier College will provide continuous storybook readings and listeners can leave with a free book. It also would not be a picnic without free lemonade and cookies.
Adventurous bears can explore the Interurban Tram Building next to the park and climb aboard the 103-year-old Interurban Tramcar 1220. Just outside the tram building will be conductor hat crafts, both for bears and their owners.
The picnic will end with a teddy bear parade around the park at 1:45 p.m. All participants will receive a certificate commemorating their BFFs – Bear Friends Forever.
The event is weather dependent as teddy bears do not like to get wet if they can help it.
For more information, call 604-238-8081 or visit www.richmond.ca/interurban1220. The Steveston Interurban Tram Building is located at 4011 Moncton Street, on the corner of Moncton Street and No.1 Road. The Steveston Park is to the east of the Tram Building.
The Teddy Bears Picnic is presented by the City of Richmond in partnership with the Steveston Community Society.
