On Saturday, April 30, 2011, Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa extended this year's nationwide celebration of our planet by partnering with local businesses and organizations for our 2nd annual Earth Expo & Farmer's Market.
The event was fun and educational (and tasty!) for kids and adults alike, offering a glimpse into some of the creative ways Victoria is initiating eco-friendly practices.
Wannawafel, a local Victoria company that bakes authentic, made-from-scratch Belgian waffles, will be hosting a charity event at Parkside on Saturday, May 7, 2011 from 2-5pm, alongside our "Going Places" Art Show, happening from 1-3pm and 7-9pm.
New Wannawafel franchisees from all over Canada will be baking and selling delicious waffles from three brand-new waffle carts in our restaurant space for half price ($2 each), with all proceeds going to the BC Children’s Hospital.
So stop by Parkside on Saturday for a day of local art and fresh-baked Wannawafels!
