Families in and around Nanaimo are invited to enjoy a day of affordable family fun this B.C. Family Day at the Nanaimo Ice Centre and the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre.
The Province, in partnership with the City of Nanaimo, officially celebrates the first B.C. Family Day on Monday, Feb. 11, 2013, with celebrations at the city's recreation facilities with free swimming at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre and free ice skating at the Nanaimo Ice Centre across the street. All this, plus family-friendly activities, will take place from noon to 5 p.m.
At four themed stations, visitors will be able to take part in activities and presentations like face painting, storytelling circles and opportunities to learn about B.C.'s natural riches.
In addition to the celebration at the recreation centres, the www.bcfamilyday.ca website provides a portal to encourage families to connect with other resources, get inspired and discover new things to do, places to explore, or events to attend throughout the province while making new memories.
