It’s the shortest month of the year, but February often feels like an ice age — or in the Lower Mainland, like the longest slog of all. Rather than curling up under your Snuggie and waiting for spring to arrive, come play with us at River Market; our Great Canadian Winter Festival features entertainment and activities for all ages.
