The 2019 festival route includes community Celebration Stations where you can collect stamps on your event map.  Start your journey at the Celebration Station closest to you and then return your map to the Saanich Hall for a chance to win a variety of great prizes.  Enjoy a variety of free family activities in the Saanich Hall parking lot from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm.

The Kids Decorated Bike Ride starts at 1:00 pm and you can choose either the 1.5 km or 2.2 km route.

The more Celebration Stations you visit, the more chances you will have to win prizes and the more exploring Saanich you will have achieved.

The main Celebration Site will be located at the Saanich Hall at 770 Vernon Avenue.
