With the change of seasons comes the annual impulse to sweep out the cobwebs and find fresh inspiration for the warm days ahead.
This weekend you’ll find just what you need at River Market during
Spring Cleaning for your Mind, Body & Soul
This interactive event takes place Saturday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Spring Cleaning will feature activities and demonstrations from small New Westminster businesses, community organizations, groups and clubs that promote health and wellness for all ages.
Enter to win terrific prizes and gift certificates in the raffle (proceeds benefit the Canadian Cancer Society, BC & Yukon). As well, the first 100 attendees will receive a gift bag filled with surprises. At 2 p.m., you can cheer on (or join in) the Spring Shave, also in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.
River Market businesses are ready to help you “spring forward” too, with a selection of samples and specials planned just for this Saturday’s event. Look for organic tea samples from Great Wall Tea Co., or try dairy-free gelatos at Tre Galli; order up a whole wheat or vegan crepe from Crepes des Amis; and at Wild Rice you can dig into a delicious gluten-free salad made with fresh corn, roasted butternut squash and edamame with a sesame dressing.
Enjoy fitness and yoga demonstrations or pre-register for Drop-in classes at Music Box Music & Theatre Academy, or at Vancouver Circus School. And watch for a cooking demonstration at Wild Rice. Visitors to MCM Home will receive a copy of Atomic Ranch Magazine, full of inspiration and ideas for mixing Mid-Century Modern furniture with all different styles, and customers at Studio A, the artisans studio, get 20% off any item purchased day of event.
Spring Cleaning is presented by Zhoosh – Fitness by Design, Sonja Curry Design Inc. and Heidi Clarkson, and is sponsored by River Market and Fresh Magazine.
