Tips and Advice
Below are some suggestions to help you make the most out of your visit to Maple Ridge and the Celebrate the Night event:
TIP #1: Memorial Peace Park is located in the heart of Maple Ridge at 22407 Dewdney Trunk Road. There is a fair bit of parking in the area, but not a ton. Try to arrive early and be prepared to walk a bit.
TIP #2: The event happens rain or shine, so, if it looks like rain, still go but remember to take your umbrella and waterproof gear.
TIP #3: Make a day out of your trip and explore the area. Kanaka Creek Regional Park is close by and Alouette Lake and Golden Ears Provincial Park aren’t too far away either. All are beautiful this time of year and great places for a walk.
TIP #4: If you like fireworks but don’t plan to be in the Maple Ridge area, check out the Halloween event at Minoru Park in Richmond. The fireworks and festivities there are impressive too, and the venue is accessible by SkyTrain.
