What's happening this weekend in New West? Top picks for Nov. 9 to 11

1. Check out the People Gotta Move: Crossing of Rails, River and Roads transportation exhibit before it hits the road and leaves the New Westminster Museum. The exhibit, which runs until Nov. 16, is a collaboration between the New Westminster Museum and the Vancouver LEGO Club. The museum is open daily in Anvil Centre, 777 Columbia St., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.

2. Attend the annual Remembrance Day services at the Armoury and/or New Westminster City Hall. The Royal Westminster Regiment’s service at the Armoury (530 Queens Ave.) gets underway at 9:45 a.m., but this one draws a packed house so you’ll want to get there early. The city’s service begins at the cenotaph in front of city hall (511 Royal Ave.) at 10:30 a.m.
