Here's what's going on in the Tri-Cities for Friday, Sept. 15:
World of Love
See a lantern show, multicultural performances and art exhibits at the World of Love Multicultural Carnival from Sept. 15 to 17 at Town Centre Park (1299 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam). The art display is up today from 1 to 5 p.m. while the opening ceremony is on Sept. 16 at 11 a.m. Admission is free to the event, which is hosted by the North America Chinese Cultural Promotion Society and the Coquitlam School District.
Try your hand at music bingo at the Royal Canadian Legion branch in Port Coquitlam (2675 Shaughnessy St.). The action starts at 6:30 p.m. and cards are $1 each; prizes will be awarded.
Front Page performs at the Royal Canadian Legion branch in Coquitlam (1025 Ridgeway Ave.) at 7 p.m. A cover charge is applied to non-members; however, there is no entry fee on Saturday nights.
Cheer on the Coquitlam Express as the hockey team plays an exhibition game against Surrey at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex (633 Poirier St., Coquitlam) at 7 p.m.
The Port Coquitlam Trailblazers host the Port Moody Panthers in the team’s first regular season Pacific Junior Hockey League home game, 7 p.m., in the John Baillie Arena at the Port Coquitlam Community Centre (2154 Wilson Ave.). The newly minted Trailblazers lost its season-opening game, 8-2, to the Richmond Sockeyes last Thursday at Minoru Arena in Richmond, while the Panthers opened the season with a pair of wins over the Abbotsford Pilots last weekend.
Friday Night Lights
High school football is already underway and Friday, there will be a doubleheader of exhibition varsity games at Centennial Secondary School’s new turf field (Poirier Street and Winslow Avenue). The Terry Fox Ravens, who’ve been displaced by renovations to their home field at Town Centre Park, host W.J. Mouat at 4 p.m. and at 7 p.m. the Centaurs will play Robert Bateman, the defending provincial AA champions, under the lights.
