Sport enthusiasts still have time to catch some events at the 55+ B.C. Games ahead of Saturday afternoon’s closing ceremonies.
Archery, badminton, golf and hockey are just some of the things that the more than 3,200 athletes will be competing on Friday and Saturday morning.
Also, a banquet dinner is being held at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex (PSLC), followed by a dance between 7:30 and 10:30 p.m.
More competitions will take place on Saturday, including curling, soccer, swimming and cycling, before the closing ceremonies at PSLC, which run from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. A volunteer appreciation event for the 1,200 people that donated their time to the games will be held at the same location between 3 and 7 p.m.
The closing ceremonies will cap a busy week of sports in Coquitlam that featured athletes from around the province competing in various activities at PSLC, Town Centre Park and the City Centre Aquatic Complex. Dragon boat racing has also been taking place at Rocky Point Park and a golf tournament is expected to wrap up later on Friday in Pitt Meadows.
