SURREY — Locomotive-related fun is promised during another Father’s Day event at Historic Stewart Farm.
From noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday (June 19), the heritage facility in South Surrey will play host to The Greater Vancouver Garden Railway Club and their display model trains (pictured).
The event will also feature train rides courtesy of Pacific Trackless Trains (see photos at Pacifictracklesstrains.com), hot dogs from the Roadside Grill Cart, conductor-style costumes, sack races on the lawn and servings of lemonade, goodies and coffee on the farmhouse verandah.
Historic Stewart Farm is located at 13723 Crescent Rd. For more event details, visit Surrey.ca/heritage or call 604-592-6956.
• Elsewhere in Surrey, Pacific Liquor will unveil what it calls Surrey’s largest craft beer fridge as part of a Father’s Day celebration at the store, 9082 152nd Street.
“We will have more than 500 different types of beer on display (and) tastings from five different breweries and lots of great prizes,” said Mike McKee, president of Pacific Liquor.
A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to Prostate Cancer Canada.
