Hello September! Another fun filled month starts off with welcoming our new retail neighbours to Town Centre and the continuation of River District Vancouver Drive In Movies with a Fall Friendly Movie line up. We also have a couple of new events and programs to share with you as well as welcoming back Munchkin Matinee and Ladies Night. Plus, there’s only 5 more Saturdays of the River District Farmers Market and then, we’ll get ready for the River District Winter Craft Fair. Always something to do #downbytheriver.
