VNCS Summer Social
Tanabata (Star) Festival
Esquimalt Gorge Park
Saturday July 7th
11am – 2pm
This event is open to all VNCS members and their friends. This event is less structured to allow folks to get to know each other better.
Please bring your own bento (lunch) to Esquimalt Gorge Park at 11:00am. The park has large picnic tables, lots of parking and full restroom facilities at the Gorge Waterway Nature House.
Make a wish to celebrate Tanabata
We’re pleased to provide tanzaku (coloured paper for writing wishes), origami paper for decorations and small bamboo for hanging the tanzaku that each family will be able to take home with them. Tanabata (Star Festival) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanabata
