West Vancouver, BC: Take a step back in time and learn about the origins of West Vancouver’s historic Caulfeild neighbourhood on Saturday, September 15. As part of West Vancouver’s ongoing centennial celebrations, A Wander Through Caulfeild’s History Day will include guided historic walking tours, photo and artifact displays with stories from local historians, local paintings, live music, traditional fun and games for children, street performers, great food, and much more.
Ann Brousson, President of the Historical Society of West Vancouver says: "We will visit the shoreline that Francis Caulfeild landed on in 1898 and we will explore the settlement that he developed. Many of the original homes are still there. On the Green by Tiddley Cove there will be fun for the entire family. Kids will play period games like sack races, 3-legged races and egg & spoon races. The K Sisters will perform old favourites like Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Buskers will entertain too. Caulfeild's old 1949 fire truck will be there to climb onto".
West Vancouver Mayor Michael Smith says: “Caulfeild is a cornerstone of West Vancouver. With its winding streets, rugged shoreline, iconic church, and unique character, Caulfeild is a one-of-a-kind neighbourhood and I encourage everyone to learn more about its history at this great family event.”
All are welcome to come down to Caulfeild's Tiddley Cove on Saturday, September 15 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Complete event details, including directions, can be found on the website: wandercaulfeild.com
