The Sounds of Summer

If lounging in a beautifully manicured garden or park, with a picnic basket filled with goodies all while being serenaded by a beautiful assortment of music, sounds like something that can only be achieved through retirement or some sort of fantasy, your wildest dreams have just become a reality.

That’s right. The sweet sounds of live and local music will be wafting through the fresh air in Surrey’s parks all summer long with genres that range from easy listening to Canadian folk music, and Venezuelan Folk to Big Band Jazz, there’s something to please all types of ears.

And, if you’re looking for something special to fill that picnic basket we’ve got some ideas for that too!

Italian speciality market Delitalia Fine Foods is where you’ll find delicious antipasto, Italian cheeses and an amazing selection of olives. Go Greek and head to Greco’s Specialty Foods for homemade spanokopita, pita bread, and the most delicious tzatziki sauce.  The grazing boxes from World of Graze, are an artistic assortment of fine meat and cheese delicacies, seasonal treats, olives, crackers, and more, and are perfect for an afternoon of grazing. Fill that basket with mouthwatering sandwiches from The Carvery Sandwich Shop or the West Village Café. Or, choose your favourite restaurant and order take-out!
