4th Annual Think City Tours

Join us for the sights, smells and sounds of the city.

VANCOUVER, May 5 /CNW/ -Think City is hosting Vancouver's fourth annual Think City Tours on the weekend of May 7th and 8th. Over 500 people have already signed up for 27 tours.

"We have seen lots of interest and enthusiasm from participants over the last three years and that is reflected in this year's sign-ups" said James Fletcher, a Think City Board member. "We are also pleased to bring Think City Tours to more communities in Metro Vancouver, as there are great stories to be told all across this region."

This year Think City Tours will be hosted in Surrey, Richmond, New Westminster, Maple Ridge, UBC, and neighbourhoods throughout Vancouver.

"Think City Tours is about providing fun opportunities for residents to engage with the many rich stories in their communities. This is a great way to learn about the incredible diversity of people, nature, history, and culture that surrounds us every day," said Fletcher.

Some notable tours to be held this year include:

  • Historian Michael Barnholden's ghost written tour through Downtown Vancouver.
  • Artist Alex Grunenfelder's air tasting tour of Gastown, the Downtown Eastside and Chinatown.
  • Bernadette Keenan's bicycle ride along little-known parts of the Fraser River waterfront in New Westminster and Surrey.
  • Writer and historian Ian McLeod's look at the past, present and future of Port Haney in Maple Ridge.
  • Steve Chitty's walk back in time along the Crescent Beach waterfront promenade.

The goal of Think City Tours is to raise urban literacy and build strong, connected communities by offering a pedestrian-focused event that combines insights into civic history, environment, planning, design and citizen engagement with the simple act of walking and observing.
