Spring is in the air! Spring break is a time to let loose and try new things, particularly for youngsters getting a bit of a break from school. From the rides at PlayDome to fishing in Green Timbers and cool stuff going on at Science World – fun comes in all varieties. Our first three suggestions come to us via Surrey’s own Miss604, Rebecca Bollwitt:

3-D Printer Village at Science World

Design any object, from a wrench to a toy rocket, and watch it come to life; that’s the power of 3-D printing. This session will involve a chat with 3-D printing enthusiasts about where the revolutionary technology is going. >> Learn more

PlayDome at BC Place

Who doesn’t like awesome rides at an amusement park? “Rides this year include Zero Gravity, the Ring of Fire, and the Super Shot,” Rebecca notes. “Popular favorites such as 1001 nights, The Ferris Wheel and the Zipper are all back to be enjoyed.” >> Learn more

Outdoor Skating at the Shops at Morgan Crossing

Already hung up your skates for winter? Just because there’s no ice, doesn’t mean we can’t all strut our stuff at the rink on Saturday, March 23. The Shops at Morgan Crossing will be creating a rink that looks and acts just like ice out of a synthetic material – letting us pop our skates on whether it’s rain or shine. >> Learn more

FREE Movies for Teens at Surrey Libraries

Catch FREE movies March 20, 27 and 27 at various Surrey Library locations, including  Captain America, The Hunger Games, and the Life of Pi!
