British Columbians around the province have been enjoying free family-friendly activities this weekend thanks to provincial funding for Family Day events.

One hundred and eighty-six community celebrations received grants. The activities funded include everything from free admittance to the Royal British Columbia Museum, to bouncy castles and family swims.

The government provided $250,000 in funding to support events in small and large communities around the province. Grants to municipal or regional district recreation departments and First Nations bands and councils enabled free, exciting and fun opportunities for the entire family to enjoy during the Family Day weekend.
