5 things to do on the North Shore this weekend

Head over to the parking lot off Hillside Church (870 Lynn Valley Rd.) at 2 p.m. tomorrow for the Antique & Classic Car Showcase, featuring vintage cars from the Model A and T vehicles of the 1920s up to the classics of the ’50s and the stylish sports cars of the ’60s. Admission is by donation, with proceeds earmarked to support Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.

We’ve all heard about genetically modified food, but how much have we really listened? Registered dietitian Kathy Romses will share her knowledge about GMOs tonight at North Vancouver City Library starting at 7 p.m. In this free presentation, you’ll learn what the current labeling rules in Canada and other parts of the world are, and how you can find food that isn’t genetically engineered. No registration required.

You only live once – why not splurge and buy a piano this weekend? Visit the Capilano University Sportsplex (2055 Purcell Way) tomorrow or Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the 25th Annual Piano Sale Event. A series of grands, uprights, and digital pianos in new, used (less than a year old), and professionally refurbished conditions will be available. Visit capilanou.ca/about-capu/get-to-know-us/events for more information.

This is one of the last Friday nights to see Shipbuilders’ Square (15 Wallace Mews) transformed into a vibrant night market. From 5 to 10 p.m. tonight, visit the Lower Lonsdale area to take in more than 100 vendors, 40-plus food truck offerings, as well as live music and entertainment. The last Shipyards Night Market of the season is slated to run Sept. 27.

The kids are all right. Meet by the picnic tables in Mahon Park (1648 Jones Ave., North Vancouver) on Sunday at 1 p.m. for a stewardship event, organized by two students from Queensbury Elementary, to learn more about what can be done to minimize our impact on the natural world and how we can make a positive difference. Kids and families will remove plastic litter and other waste around Mahon Park and Wagg Creek, followed by an educational talk, as part of this BC Rivers Day event.
