MAPLE RIDGE — Despite the overcast skies, approximately 600 people turned out for the annual Victoria Day Family Fun Day at the Maple Ridge Centre.

Privately owned by Conrad and Rachel Potvin, who have transformed the former Maple Ridge Senior Public School building into a taxpaying enterprise specializing in special events and business rental space, the venue’s sprawling sports field was transformed into a mini-fair May 22.

Parents with tots and strollers in tow enjoyed the vendor tents, cotton candy and food concessions, the critters at Vanderlaand The Barnyard Zoo’s dispaly, along with vintage cars and Tribeck Inflatables’  TSSA-approved bouncy castles.

Students of the Kali Andrews Dance Company — one of the tenant companies on site — also put on a demonstration of gymnastic skill.
