The annual Tsawwassen Sun Festival is going virtual this year.
The pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s three-day event, which typically included a parade, softball tournament, midway, art market, antique fair, food venders, main stage activities, beer garden and more.
This year, things will be different.
Delta council recently agreed to provide a $3,500 grant to help pay for the creation and promotion of virtual activities, such as cooking classes, bingo and a talent competition.
A drive-in movie is also planned.
Still to be confirmed is a pickleball tournament and a Legacy of Arts offering that promotes local musicians.
A letter of request from Bob Tate, Tsawwassen Sun Festival chair, notes the festival committee is excited to hold the event for 2021.
“With COVID-19 our festival will look different and have put together a few events that we could do to keep our legacy alive and bring the community together over the long weekend," said Tate. "The Tsawwassen Sun Festival will celebrate its 49th year and in collaboration with the Boundary Bay Lions, Rotary Club of Tsawwassen and TOOBS and local businesses we want to bring it to life.”
