June means that summer is so close we can almost taste it, like when you through the gates at Playland and catch the first whiff of mini donuts. We start the month with Vancouver Craft Beer Week, and Hats Off Day in Burnaby and continue with Surrey Doors Open, The Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards, Bard on the Beach, and so much more.
