Heritage Week 2020 takes place from February 17 to 23. City of Delta has a ton of fun activities planned for Heritage Week 2020! Keep checking back for updates and activity details.
Can you help tell the story of Delta? We’re looking for significant items to showcase in our pop-up museums at Sungod Recreation Centre and South Delta Recreation Centre! From scarves to diplomas to small family heirlooms; anything that you feel connects you to Delta will be considered. If you have an item you’d like to be displayed for Heritage Week (February 17-23), send a picture and brief description of the item to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit your items is Friday, February 7.
*Items will be provided on a temporary loan basis. All items will be returned to their original owner upon the completion of the pop-up museum.
*Please note, while all items will be considered, we can only display a small number of them. Displays will be chosen based on theme, size and space.
Starting Monday, February 17 (Family Day) residents can pick up a free Delta Road Trip Bingo sheet from the North Delta Center for the Arts, Tsawwassen Arts Centre, Delta Archives, Ladner Leisure Centre, South Delta Recreation Centre, or Sungod Recreation Centre. A printable copy of the bingo sheet can also be downloaded here!
The bingo sheets include historic, important and famous buildings from all across Delta. Participants can work all week on spotting the buildings during their usual activities or they can make a day of it and explore the history of Delta all at once. Completed bingo sheets can be returned at any of the pick up locations for a small prize!
*Prizes available while quantities last.

Fun Fact! When aircrafts battle at close range, it is called a dogfight. Did you know that aerial battles between planes have been happening since 1913?
While North 40 Park Reserve is an off-leash dog park today, it was once home to dogfighter pilots.

Make sure to bring your own reusable mug for a hot beverage to enjoy on the walk! For more information about this activity, call 604.952.3838.
