Surrey is offering a fun-filled free workout class this July.  Enjoy free Bollywood aerobics classes this summer.

Every Thursday in July, there will be Bollywood aerobics classes happening at the Old Grosvenor Road School Site.  From 5:30 pm-6:50 pm, you can join in on a free cardio workout that combines Indian dance moves with muscle strengthening to Bollywood music.

Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival Returns for Spring 2017 in Abbotsford, BC

Get out and enjoy a breath of fresh air this spring.  The Abbotsford Tulip Festival returns for the 2nd annual year.

The Abbotsford Tulip Festival opened on April 10 to showcase the 3 million tulips that grow in the field.  With a cold winter, the tulips are still blooming, but it shouldn’t be long before they all show their beautiful colours as pictured above.  The festival will be ongoing until May 7 though, so that gives you lots of time to see the beautiful flowers.

Admission prices begin at $2 for local Abbotsford residents after 3pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and goes up to $30 to for special access to the fields during sunrise on the weekends.  If you’re looking for a deal and aren’t a local Abbotsford resident, the best deal is during the week for $8, ages 13-64.  Plus, if you go during the week, you beat the busy crowds, so that’s a bonus too!  All tickets include parking too.
