Downtown Maple Ridge is looking a little bit more colourful.
A rainbow crosswalk was painted on 224th Street Monday afternoon, following the City’s decision to install it earlier this month in the wake of the Orlando shooting.

From 12 to 3 p.m., community members can attend the barbecue in Memorial Peace Park, followed by a candlelight vigil at the bandstand from 8 to 9 p.m.
