Got Kids? Check out the BC Home + Garden Show This Week!

I'm all over family, health, and wellness shows, but I have to admit, the BC Home + Garden Show always seemed to fly under my radar after having Aias because I never thought of it as particularly family friendly.  Or so I thought.  This year the BC Home + Garden Show, taking place at BC Place Stadium February 20th to 24th, has tons of family friendly features and activities.  If you are like me and you always have your little one with you, this will be a fabulous event for you to try taking them to this year. 

While there will be family fun throughout the course of this popular event, on Thursday February 21st from noon to 5pm, Dominion Lending Centres is sponsoring Family Day at the BC Home + Garden Show; here's some information about this awesome day!

Calling all parents and little ones! Family-friendly fare is the focus at the
BC Home + Garden Show’s first annual Family Day. faceaballoonza! and will be on-hand to offer up face painting and easy art
