Escape the Room (and the Ghosts)
Escape Quest Presents Ghosts of the LSPU Hall
Starts Hourly, Friday or Saturday, between 4-10pm
Back by popular demand, Escape Quest has partnered up with the LSPU Hall for their now-annual Ghosts of the LSPU Hall “Escape the Room” event. Rumour has it, The Hall is one of the city’s most haunted and storied structures. This Adventure Hour will let participants explore abandoned dressing rooms, narrow back stages, and the theatre itself, “as you uncover the dark secrets of this historic building.” Groups are sent into these spaces, which are filled with obstacles, locks, and clues. Working together, they must solve each problem in the hopes of finding a way out before the time is up.
Bleu EP Release, with Green & Gold, and Dormitories
Friday, 10pm @ The Ship
Head out to this new EP release from one of the city’s finest live bands, who’ll be sharing the stage with Dormitories (an interesting new project from Nick Bendsza), and modern legends Green & Gold, who have been playing infrequently, so, all the more reason not to miss this one.
Kid Friendly: Go Fly a Kite!
5th Annual PAL Kite Festival
Sunday 1:00pm-4:00pm @ Bowring Park
The staff of Provincial Airlines (PAL ) “invite everyone out to celebrate the wonder of flight with us!” In addition to flying kites, Juno-winners The Swing Belles will provide engaging entertainment for all ages, and of course there’ll be a kite flying contest, bouncy castle, face painting, BBQ, and more. Admission is free; cash BBQ, and kites for sale on the spot ($10). All proceeds from kite sales, and donations, will be in support of Choices for Youth!
