The BIA is all about giving customers an unexpected bonus, just for being in the North Road area. One way we do this is by creating events and promotions that are free and fun for families. We invite the community to join in on the fun!
Korean Community Day: This event is soon to be a favourite, with a K-Pop competition, live entertainment, a Kim Chi tasting competition between the restaurants and art walks that feature local and international Korean artists. At the big Korean Mall, 4501 North Road.
Halloween: This popular event takes place in front of the North Gate Village Plaza (3433 North Road) and the North Road Square Mall (3355 North Road) during the afternoon of the last Saturday of October 30th, from 11-1pm. Costumed kiddies are invited to join the crowd for trick or treating, making crafts, getting treats and balloon animals.
Strolling Christmas Carolers: Students from Burnaby Mountain join in the fun, singing Christmas favourites along North Road at participating businesses, Saturday’s in December. From 11-2. Feel free to join in. The more, the merrier!
Winterfest at the big Korean Mall, 4501 North Road Centre: Join us next December for authentic Korean Winter games, hot chocolate and arts and crafts, Korean style. On the plaza.
Lunar New Year: A new February neighbourhood favourite, with delicious treats, art displays, singing and games. At the North Road Centre Mall. 4501 North Road.
Easter: The merchants of North Gate Village Mall team up with the BIA to present an Easter Egg Hunt, with the Easter Bunny presiding! Lots of goodies, all free of charge.
Mother’s Day: Celebrate the day with the Merchants of the North Gate Village Mall. Your family will be treated to a fun day of crafts and games, an exotic animal petting zoo and a full day of beauty at Shoppers Drug Mart, who hold a Gala event inside their store in support of the Canadian Cancer Society’s “Look Good, Feel Better” campaign.
