Special Events & More in the West End
The City of Vancouver’s annual Keep Vancouver Spectacular (KVS) campaign, the West End Cleanup is on May 25, 2013. It's a joint initiative between the West End BIA and volunteer group West End Cleanup, bringing businesses and residents together to cleanup and tidy up the West End. It’s a chance to give back to the community, share in the spirit of working together and feeling pride in our neighbourhood and our City. The cleanup will draw awareness to issues of litter and graffiti and we hope to inspire future cleanup initiatives.
Keep The West End Spectacular
The sidewalks and parking areas around your business are part of your business. These areas make an important impression on your customers. Let’s make it a good one!
