My Weekend Festivals and Local Fun blog posts are my favourite part of Wednesdays and today I’m sharing about (1) RecycleFest and (2) Ice Cream.
- Weekend Festival: RecycleFest at Trout Lake Park on Saturday, July 22
- Local Fun: Go for ice cream as a family!
While completely different activities for you to participate in this weekend, both are fantastically family oriented.
RecycleFest is a local festival taking place at Trout Lake Park (Vancouver) on Saturday, July 22 from 10am to 3pm. The main purpose of this family-fun event is to drop off any of old or unwanted small appliances and power tools so they can be recycled properly. However, this good-for-the-earth event is also good for families as it features:
- Bouncy Castle.
- Hot dog BBQ (good if you miss National Hot Dog Day on July 19).
- Photo Booth.
- Games and prizes.
RecycleFest caught my eye because it starts in the morning, meaning you could check it out before toddler nap-time.
I also like that it supports a cause I believe in. I’m already teaching my toddler how to recycle. She knows we separate our waste and she takes yogurt containers to our blue bin for me.
Another perk of RecycleFest is that it fulfills a need. I seem to replace my hairdryer every couple years and I have a stack that I need to recycle – finally an easy opportunity to get these unwanted hairdryers out of my house.

Local Fun: Go for Ice Cream
I apologize, if you read my Summer Bucket List Check In post then you’ll know I still haven’t gone out for ice cream this summer. If you get your ice cream in a cone then there’s no container to waste and you can keep with the reduce, reuse, recycle theme.
