I have 5 minutes before I “hit the hay” and I really wanted to get this out there.

This weekend, I’m attending the Point Grey Fiesta. It’s a community gathering with events spanning three days (June 18th – 20th).

A girlfriend of mine told me the Fiesta is  “…a lot of fun, full of shiny, happy people”. Hmmmm….with a glowing (or should I say shiny) review like that, how can I say no.

The epicenter of this intriguing event is Trimble Park, where a variety of carnival rides will magically appear for 3 days. Carnival rides in the center of the city? That sounds like a cute, old fashioned, small town fair to me (which I love). To check out the rides head to Trimble park Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday at the times specified below. You can purchase early-bird tickets from West 10th merchants or purchase regular ride tickets on the day.

Fiesta Friday Afternoon
After School Carnival rides and midway games from 15:00 – 21:00
Fiesta Saturday
Carnival rides from 11:00 – 21:00
Fiesta Sunday
Carnival rides from 12:00 – 17:00
