APRIL FOOLS! Watch for the announcement of this summer's Fridays on Front series soon!
Introducing: Fridays on Front – OVER THE TOP. We'll feature all your favourite elements from Fridays on Front, but everything will be so much higher. We’ll be suspended over the top of the parkade for this very special edition, so mark your calendar for Friday, May 24th from 4:00-9:00pm.
The top food trucks will be in attendance, Steel & Oak Brewing Co. will be introducing a limited release top-notch beer, and to top that off, Downtown New West’s newest cannabis store will be sampling their soon to be available menu.
“The Downtown New West BIA team has done it again and continues to surprise and impress with their innovative ideas for placemaking initiatives. This event will not disappoint and I for one can’t wait to be blown away with the unique opportunity to be over the parkade, enjoying a beer and the spectacular views” says Mayor Jonathan Cote.
It wouldn’t be a party without tunes from the Arts Council of New Westminster. Their Executive Director, Stephen O’Shea, is looking forward to participating in this special edition of Fridays on Front, adding “Our musicians are psyched, they’ve never been this high before”.
Fridays on Front has become the weekend kick-off for Metro Vancouver residents in the summer, and everyone has been asking for more. This event is the evolution of that success, the grown-up party, the must attend event this Spring.
