Join us for the 2013 May Day Celebrations! Port Coquitlam certainly has a lot to be proud of in 2013! This year, we mark our City’s 100th birthday and celebrate 90 years of history and tradition with our May Day Festival. Our May Day festivities began in 1923 to celebrate the beginning of Spring, with children gathering at Aggie Park to rejoice and skip around maypoles to perform a wonderful ribbon dance. Ninety years later, the enthusiasm is just as exciting as we enjoy an entire week of family-focused activities! The fun begins with the Opening Ceremonies at 7:30 pm on Friday, May 3rd in the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex. The Port Coquitlam Rotary May Day Parade will bring our community together on Saturday, May 11th and this year, to commemorate our 100 year milestone, City Council will be re-enacting the tree planting ceremony that took place at Aggie Park in 1913. Further details about this year’s May

Day festivities are available on the City’s website at www.portcoquitlam.ca/mayday. We have certainly come a long way over the past century, while continuing to appreciate and honour our long-standing traditions and values. Our small town charm and PoCo Pride has served us well and people are noticing! What better way to celebrate a 100 birthday than to be recognized as one of the most livable cities in BC and Canada. We truly are a best-kept secret, where people can still afford to buy a home or set up a business. Best of all, we still have that old-fashioned community spirit that you don’t often find in urban areas; that speaks to you, our community, and you should be very proud of this accolade! Our City’s May Day Task Force has worked extremely hard with the parks and recreation staff to make this year’s 90th May Day Festival one that you will all enjoy!! On behalf of

Port Coquitlam City Council, we invite you to come out and celebrate our City’s rich history on its 100th birthday!! Yours in PoCo Pride, Greg Moore, Mayor

Happy Birthday Port Coquitlam! This March, Port Coquitlam turned 100 years old. Being one hundred years old is a reason to celebrate and it is with great pleasure that I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about our May Day week and invite you to celebrate this special year with us. Port Coquitlam has been buzzing since January with Birthday activities and we have more to share with you during May Days. During the Opening Ceremonies on May 3rd we will be revisiting 1923, our first May Day in Port Coquitlam. Our royal party will be dancing to the beat of those bygone days with the youthful zest they always provide. There will be live entertainment and we have invited all of our former May Queens to come out and join us. With loads of fun, this always is an awesome event. The Port Coquitlam Heritage Society will be holding their annual dance on May 5th at Wilson Center. If you have not been out to a community dance this one is always lots of fun. Our annual Rotary May Day parade is on Saturday

May 11th. Following the parade, our city will be alive with opportunities for free fun and entertainment. There is a historical re-enactment of the official tree planting ceremony that took place at Aggie Park 100 years ago, a block party in Leigh Square with live music, games, a market place and carnival, a block party at Station Square with train rides, and free Trolley rides leaving from the Port Coquitlam Heritage site to take you around the city. Each of these venues will be offering free fun events for all. One of my favourite days is Mother’s Day in the Park. This year it will take on a new flair with tents and activities at Aggie Park. This is a new location for us. There will be magic and story telling, a pet show, a special planter box to make for mom, and family portraits. Come and bring a picnic lunch or, for a very small price, you can purchase a meal from the Kinsmen. There is always lots of free activities and entertainment for the whole family. As you can see, May Day is a very exciting time for Port

Coquitlam and this year will be even bigger as we celebrate our Centennial . If you are new to the city I invite you to come and experience May Day with us. It’s our birthday and we will be celebrating. I hope that you will join us. You can always find out more about this week by checking out our web site at www.portcoquitlam.ca/mayday.

90th Annual May Day Opening Ceremony

Dance Through The Decades - May 4th at Wilson Centre

Friday May 3, 7:30 Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex

Come along and dance through the decades. Are you a fox trot fanatic or a Dancing Queen or do you just like to strut your stuff ? Dust off your John Travolta or Gene Kelly and join us on May 4th for the Community Dance co-sponsored by the PoCo Heritage Society and Caydance Studios. Community dances are rare these days and are almost a lost part of our history. In Port Coquitlam each year we hold a community dance sponsored by the PoCo Heritage Society. This year the annual adult only dance is on Saturday May 4th at Wilson Centre with live music by Luna Rossa, appetizers, door prizes and a cash bar. This event is always lots of fun. Come and dance the night away! The doors open at 6:30pm and there is live music from 8:00 to midnight. Tickets are available for $25.00 at The Outlet in Port Coquitlam, on-line through the PoCo Heritage Society www.pocoheritage.org, or at Caydance Dance Studios

This year’s opening ceremony includes the installation of the Royal Party and traditional May Day Pole Dancing performed by our local school children. Flying Not Falling will entertain. An elegant gentleman, a spotlight stealing dandy, and a disaster prone clown team up in in this whimsical vaudeville revue. It’s choreographed chaos, it’s musical madcappery, it’s ... Flying Not Falling! Flying Not Falling have entertained audiences around North America, with their unique blend of juggling, clown, and musical comedy.

Doors open at 6:30pm

AT LIONS PARK

Vancouver’s finest Montessori now serving the Tri-Cities

Rotary Parade The annual Mayday parade is the most recognized event during the May Day Festival. It has been tradition in Port Coquitlam for decades. It’s been said that half the town is in the parade and the other half is watching. This year the parade theme is “Celebrating our Community Through the Decades” and there are over 100 entries including the crowd favourite The Freddy Fuddpucker Novelty Band. This year many of the former May Queens from the past 90 years will join the parade alongside the

current Port Coquitlam Royal Party comprised of local school children. Over the years one of the most talked about and definitely one of the most exciting entries in the parade is the Vancouver Police Motor Cycle Drill Team. This year they are returning to rev up the crowd just prior to the parade beginning. Get to the parade route early to guarantee a great spot.

May Day Promenade This year being Port Coquitlam’s Hundredth Birthday, we will be commemorating the event with a full costume promenade from Leigh Square to Aggie Park for a ceremonial tree planting and re-enactment of some of the city’s finest moments in history. The participants for this event include our City Councillors, who will be helped along by talented actors from Second Storey Improv Theatre. I have had several opportunities to attend some of Second

Storey’s productions and I am sure they will have all the facts down correctly…. well… maybe close to the facts… okay maybe just loosely based on the facts. Any way you look at it this will be a fun way to spend your afternoon after the parade. Remember, we will be meeting in front of City Hall at approximatley12:00 and rest assured I have it on somewhat sketchy authority that Second Storey would not even consider poking fun at our city.
