IOCO Ghost Town Day (7)

Come to the Ioco Townsite ( Ioco Road and 1st Avenue) on Sunday October 6th, 2013 and be delighted by Model A car tours around Ioco, magic shows, and  pony rides !  This is a free family event. There will be a variety of games and crafts for kids to play, as well as many booths set up by societies around the Tri-Cities! Throughout the day you will be able to listen to two great bands, Antique Gold and 5 On a String Bluegrass band as well as be entertained by local magician, Dennis Hewson.

Rebel Haunt Theatre, will also be there to perform “Home Town”,  a site-specific, audience-interactive play set in the 1930s. The audience moves with the actors through the Ioco townsite; exploring various locations, meeting characters and watching the story unfold. The show incorporates stories from the history of Ioco and Port Moody.

“Home Town” is a great way for locals to get a sense of the community that Ioco residents enjoyed in the 1930s. Written using information and stories from the old “Ioco Times” newsletter, the characters evoke the feeling of the good old days as they explore the remaining heritage buildings and environment at the Ioco town.

    Hi there,

    I am the Coordinator of a 30ft self-sufficient trailer that gives away FREE espresso based beverages (Lattes, Cappuccinos, Mochas, Hot Chocolate, etc.) and would love to take part in the event at Ioco Townsite on October 6th!

    Our team gives away full 10oz coffees and specialty beverages and all we require is level ground to set our trailer on and access to water supply, if possible. Although we bring extra water for our tank with us, it is always good to know if there will be an additional water source on site.

    Our truck and trailer combined occupy 50ft, but we can unhitch our trailer if needed. Therefore, although 50ft of space is preferable, we are able to operate in a 30ft space, with extra room to maneuver in and out of.

    We run for 5 hours sampling free coffees, and require 1 hour for set up and 1 hour for tear down (a total of 7 hours).

    The event at the Ioco Townsite on October 6th seems like such a great event and we would love to get involved. Please let me know if we will be able to take part!

    You can reach me at this email address or by phone at 778-788-8037. Thank you!
