Many civic facilities open doors for free this weekend
A weekend of fun – and free – activities is planned for this weekend, in honour of Prince
George’s 100th birthday on March 6, 2015.
“We have some of the best facilities of any city our size in Canada. They’ve been imagined,
financed, and built by the people of Prince George over the past 100 years, and one way to say
thanks is to throw open the doors for the weekend, ” said Mayor Lyn Hall. “It’s especially
important given the support people showed during the 2015 Canada Winter Games, when
many facilities were not open to the public.”
