Summer is upon us - and that means New West Craft has returned to the boardwalk outside River Market. The market is a great place to browse for handmade wares from local artisans.
If you missed Saturday's market, more markets are coming up July 6, July 20, Aug. 3 and Aug. 17, all from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To say that it was a wet day for the Hyack International Parade on Saturday, May 25 would be an understatement. But, despite the soggy skies, participants and watchers alike caught the enthusiasm of the parade full of floats, marching bands, community organizations and various VIPs. Photographer Jennifer Gauthier dodged the raindrops to bring you this festive photo gallery.
A hopping good time was had by all at the annual Easter in Queen’s Park event on Sunday. There was a variety of free activities including crafts, live entertainment, activity stations, a petting farm and photos with the Easter bunnies.

He's the mild-mannered mayor who became a wrestling sensation. Jonathan Cote, in the persona of Johnny X, entertained the crowds as he joined in a tag team battle with Mr. India to defend New Westminster's honour against American opponents Azeem the Dream (Azeem Mohammed) and the Ideal Reflection (current All Star Wrestling champion Christopher Ryseck) during the main event at Saturday night's Royal City Rumble, held at Royal City Centre.
Royal City Centre was packed with fans on Saturday night for the Royal City Rumble - and photographer Jennifer Gauthier was there to capture all the mayhem. A highlight of the night was the 20-person Rumble match that featured wrestlers from B.C., Washington State and back east, including six New Westies who made their wrestling debut.
Young New Westminster residents made the most of the winter's first real snowfall on Sunday, taking to the parks and trails to do their best to play in the white stuff. Cold temperatures are expect to continue for the rest of the week, with below-freezing numbers overnight, but no new snow is forecast at this point. Enjoy it while you can!
Trees met their fate Saturday and Sunday at the New Westminster Firefighters Charitable Society's annual charity tree chipping event. Chipping was by donation with all the money going to help the society continue its support of various programs in the community.
The event also included fire safety demonstrations.
