3 things to do this week (Surrey, North Delta)

1. Delta’s Concerts in the Park series hits North Delta next week with two performances at Sunshine Hills Park — first on Tuesday, July 21 with Delta Concert Band (7:30 p.m. start) and then on Wednesday, July 22 with the Celtic band Halifax Wharf Rats (7 p.m. start). Bring a lawn chair for these shows, done in a park that has a playground facing the temporary stage, at the corner of Bond Boulevard and Carncross Crescent. For more details, click here to see the events calendar.

2. Surrey Museum aims to riff on "The Great Gatsby" with its Music at the Museum gathering on the evening of Thursday, July 23. The outdoor family event encourages attendees to "don flapper fringes and two-toned tappers, pull up your lawn chair, and spend a swellegant evening reliving the Roaring Twenties," with entertainment by Surrey’s The Reenactors troupe and local swing-jazz band Company B. The by-donation event runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at 17710 56A Ave., Cloverdale. For more info, call 604-592-6956 or visit Surrey.ca/heritage.

3. Located in the heart of Newton is Zaklan Heritage Farm, which hosts a market event every Saturday this summer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Look for it at 13278 84th Ave. — home to a flock of hens and a friendly llama named Reverend who loves to eat kale. Check it out online at Zaklanheritagefarm.com.
