104th Street Centennial Block Party

Al Fresco is cancelled, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a block party! Come out to celebrate the heritage buildings on our special street reaching their big 100 years!

The day gets started with DECL’s annual pancake breakfast at 8:30 am. The City Market runs from 9am-3pm, and the Pride Parade runs down 102 Ave starting at noon.

Things get swinging at 4:30 with a BBQ, street performers, salsa lessons, a live music from the Tub Steppers and MORE! Make your way down the Promenade to learn about the history our Heritage buildings, and at 6pm there will be a balloon release and official celebration.  Bring the kids as there will be lots to keep them busy…. Kelly’s Pub is sponsoring a Jumpy castle, face painting, balloon animals and more!

DeVine wines is pouring some great wines in support of this event… Check out what they have in store here.
