Get ready to rock at Victoria’s unique Roundhouse. We have three events rolled into one! We are combining the Volunteer Appreciation, Rock & Roll Dance and Passing of the Flag Ceremony into one great evening. This event is going to be unlike any of the previous dances at past 55+ BC Games, with different bands, buskers and street performers, food trucks and beer from Vancouver Island Brewing. If you enjoyed the 50’s/60’s/70’s and a hint of the 80’s – then this is one party that you can let your hair down (if you have some!), drag out the blue jeans/tie dye shirts and as Jerry Garcia said – YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON HERE! The passing of the flag to Abbotsford as the 2023 host will take place, and the drawing of the 50/50 will take place this evening as well as the Jump into Action Participant registration incentive.
Tickets for this event are required and will be distributed at your Accreditation venue (Pearkes for Volunteers and Crystal Gardens for Participants).
This is an outdoor event and attendees are reminded to dress for the weather.
Transport shuttle to downtown will be provided, details to be provided later.
