On this day, 125 years ago in 1886, Vancouver was incorporated as a city on the south shore of Burrard Inlet. Since then, the fledgling community boomed into a cosmopolitan crossroads with people from all over the world.

Vancouver has welcomed the world twice: Expo 86 and the 2010 Winter Olympics. Millions of people come through each year to experience the beauty, the food and culture.

Come join the celebrations in Jack Poole Plaza west of the Vancouver Convention Centre. There will be music, ball hockey, food, artwork, cake and a relighting of the Olympic Cauldron.

Vancouver turns 125 on April 6th, 2011 and the city is planning a party to celebrate the milestone. From 2:00 PM PDT to 9:30 PM PDT a free, family friendly event will be held down at the Jack Poole Plaza west of the Vancouver Convention Centre. There will be music, ball hockey, food, artwork, cake and a relighting of the Olympic Cauldron.
