Deals for BC Family Day

By January 29, 2013

Follow me on:

Grouse MountainEveryone loves a long weekend, and the newest three-day weekend is BC's Family Day. Monday Feb. 11, 2013 marks the first Family Day in BC. In future years, the provincial holiday will fall on the second Monday in February (while some other provinces celebrate on the third Monday).

And since the spirit of the day-off is family time, there are great deals to be had and fun events happening around the province.
