Hats Off Day is an incredibly fun tradition in our family! We have been attending annually for the past 5 years – even before we had Alivia. With a fun filled day of parades, food samplings, kids zone and the Family Fun Dash, it’s guaranteed to be an amazing time for adults and kids alike. We live in such an close-knit community, the businesses in The Heights appreciate each and every person who supports shopping locally and keeping our community beautiful and diverse. Every year they throw pretty spectacular street party to say THANKS (and take their hats off) to each and every one of you. With the addition of the 550 metre dash down Hastings Street before the parade, it’s the perfect start to the morning for kids, stretching those legs and promoting activity, family and fun!
Do you have a child in elementary school who’d love to tackle the Family Fun Dash? Get those laces tied and get ready for this fun 3rd annual sprint down Hastings Street!
When: Saturday June 6th at 9:30am
Where: Madison Ave. & Hastings St.
Sponsors: Heights Merchants Association, Scotiabank, and Chevron

All participants will be rewarded at the finish line with an official Fun Dash ribbon, and a fun swag bag full of goodies.

All proceeds from the dash benefit the Burnaby Firefighter Charitable Society.
“The Family Fun Dash has been a great addition to our festival. The kids love to be cheered on by all the spectators, and it puts a spark in them to be active, and experience the joy of running” -Isabel Kolic, executive director of the Heights Merchants Association, leading host of Hats Off Day.
