Three things to do this weekend (Sept. 5 to 7)

1. Sunstone Park in North Delta will light up with displays, activities, entertainment and more on Saturday evening (Sept. 6). The Luminary Festival kicks off at 6 p.m. for this family-friendly affair, featuring a lantern parade to illuminate the park as fire dancers, stilt walkers and Afrofunk dance band Coco Jafro entertain the crowd. Show up for four hours of fun and magic at Sunstone Park, 10400 Delsom Cres., North Delta.

2. The City of White Rock and the White Rock Chinese Arts Centre are kicking off a three-day moon festival on Friday (Sept. 5) at 5 p.m. The festival will light up with more than 500 lanterns along the White Rock pier, and the mid-harvest fest will include live music, performances, martial arts demonstrations and more. The Moon Festival runs all weekend and will culminate on Sunday (Sept. 7) at 5 p.m.

3. The Surrey Safeway Walk for Muscular Dystrophy kicks off at Bear Creek Park (13750 88th Ave., Surrey) at noon Saturday, Sept. 6. The disorder, which currently has no cure, deteriorates the neuromuscular system and is often fatal. Join Surrey families as they walk to fundraise for those suffering from MD and for a cure. The day also includes kids activities, face painting, prize raffles and free food. Visit to find out how to get involved.
