Shamrocks and bunnies at The Market
Lonsdale Quay Market hosted its St. Patrick’s Day event attracting locals and visitors from all over the Metro Vancouver region. The Market started off the morning in style with the Eire Born Irish Dancers, who wowed the crowd with traditional Irish dance and energetic performances. Afterwards, face-painting, balloon twisting and children’s crafts kept the little ones busy until a Leprechaun arrived with a pot of lucky gold chocolate coins. The event included a fiddle performance from the North Shore Celtic Ensemble that ended the day on a high note.
The Market also celebrated Easter in a sweet way this year with over 450 treat bags filled with chocolate, samples and coupons for the Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 1. Children had photo opportunities and treats with the Easter Bunny along with balloon twisting, an Easter colouring station and Cookie Decorating Workshop.
