Celebrate Sports and Healthy Living with KitsFest

With the summer winding down, I’m sure all of you are looking for some fun and exciting things to do.  One such event is Vancouver’s newest summer tradition: KitsFest.  This 3 day festival running from August 20-22 is a celebration of sports and healthy living taking place at Kitsilano beach.

This event consists of competitive sports tournaments, games, and plenty of other fun activities for people of all ages.  Not only is it a great way to get out and celebrate sports, you would also be helping out a good cause.  Money raised and donated for this event will go towards upgrading the Kitsilano beach area in an effort to re-invest in our community.

If you would like to register your sports team, fill out an application form at http://www.kitsfest.com/register.html.  The sports being played are basketball, volleyball, tennis and beach tennis, which is a new sport sanctioned by the US Tennis Association.

This is quite a big event so volunteers are needed to help out in all areas.  If you are interested, send an e-mail to kitsfest@gmail.com to get more details. 

Even if you don’t have a sports team or can’t volunteer, be sure to check out this event.  Its infectious positive energy will definitely get you into the summer spirit.
