First-Time Event ‘Go Blue on South Granville’ Kicking Off this Summer

The BC Blueberry Council brings a 10-day event to South Granville

To launch the start of this year’s fresh blueberry season, the British Columbia Blueberry Council (BCBC) is teaming up with the South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) to celebrate all things blue – as in blueberries – for ‘Go Blue on South Granville’. This 10-day event will take place from July 18 to 28, 2019 along South Granville.

A number of South Granville’s restaurants will be featuring local blueberries in both savoury and sweet offerings, as well as beverages. In addition, the street (from 5th to 16th Ave) will be transformed with hues of blue as various retailers will be celebrating blueberries in their own ways – with special promotions, sales, events, and decorations.
