Come celebrate 100 years at Port Coquitlam city hall

Port Coquitlam celebrated its centennial last year and now it’s city hall’s turn.

The building that has been integral to the municipality’s development over the last century is turning 100 this month and residents are invited to join in the festivities on Saturday.

Tours of city hall will take place between noon and 3 p.m. on March 15 along with face painting and other attractions. An evening event will also be held between 7 and 9 p.m. featuring live jazz and appetizers; tickets cost $25.

Local community organizations and their sponsors will be honoured with a Wall of Community Contribution and the presentation of the community organization of the year award.

There will be music and appetizers along with a gallery of photos and displays showing the history of the city’s historic building. The celebrations coincide with PoCo’s 101st birthday.

For more information or to purchase tickets, go to www.pocoparty.ca or ask about the event at the customer service desk at Leigh Square.
