Britannia Water Festival Grand Finale, Friday, Feb 26th, 7:00-9:00, FREE!

Hi folks,
This coming Friday night is the last event of the Britannia Water Festival. 
Originally, the idea was that we wanted to provide some fun and inspiring programming for people in the Britannia community, figuring that most people probably wouldn't be attending any Olympics events. But what with the Olympics on TV and the multitude of Cultural Olympiad events, turn-out for our Water Festival has been kind of disappointing ...
But this Friday is going to be quite a splendid evening and we want to get a significant crowd out for it.
Like all the other Water Festival events, this one is free.
Local Grandview-Woodland musician Simon Kendall (former pianist for the fabulous Vancouver band "Doug and the Slugs") is assembling a few of his friends to perform water-themed music for the evening...
There will be water-themed free snacks (!), prepared by caterer Michael Speier.
There will be a water-tasting event
There may be a poetry reading.
There may also be a short (but allegedly very entertaining/educational) video presentation by MetroVancouver about our water system and our new Metro water filtration system.

Please come! It's free! It'll be fun! The more the merrier!
Friday evening, Feb 26th, 7:00-9:00 pm, at the Canucks Family Education Centre (upstairs from Family Place, just north of Grandview Park)!
