There’s more to the Tour de Delta than just cycling as the weekend includes a pair of community festivals and the introduction of a Kids Zone in Ladner.
The North Delta Community Festival will be held in conjunction with the North Delta Criterium on Friday evening, while the South Delta Community Festival will be held as part of the White Spot | Delta Road Race in Tsawwassen on Sunday.
New this year is a Kids Zone, which will be part of the Ladner Criterium on Saturday afternoon.
Set to run from 5 to 9 p.m. on the grounds of Richardson Elementary and the North Delta Social Heart Plaza, the North Delta Community Festival will be a celebration of North Delta sport, recreation and culture, and provide an opportunity to try a variety of sports and experience Delta. There will be live entertainment, children's activities, food vendors and more.
A Kids Zone will be set up in the Ladner Harbour Centre parking lot from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. Sponsored by Michael Lepore and Royal LePage Regency, the Kids Zone will give youngsters the chance to race through an obstacle course, practice their bike safety skills and take part in a variety of family-friendly activities.
Sunday’s festival, which will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Dennison Park, offers family fun as well as a great view of the finish line. It will include a Kids Zone, interactive displays and booths from local groups, food vendors, entertainers and more.
