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.

And the newly painted pavement will be celebrated this Thursday.

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.
