The event runs until 1 p.m., and will feature a pancake breakfast, hot dog lunch, grab bag of candies, a cupcake walk and more.
The national Savladoran dish, along with homemade salsa and curtido (coleslaw) are featured in this fundraiser in support of medical care for those in the Sierra Madres. It goes Saturday a 5 to 6:15 p.m. at the Pitt Meadows VRC Church (19040 Lougheed Highway, beside the old Roosters) and you can reserve at email@example.com with a suggested minimum donation of $10.

Kingfishers Waterfront Bar and Grill will have local musician Clay Scott performing, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday night will bring the Family Hoedown, again at Burnett Fellowship and as a benefit to the Starfish Backpack Program.
That event will run from 6-9:30 p.m., and is a rare chance for the whole family to learn how to square dance. There will be prizes for the best-dressed cowfolks, chili on a bun, snacks and an ice cream bar. The goal is to raise $5,000.

The Maple Ridge Burrards take on the Victoria Shamrocks at Cam Neely Arena at 6 p.m. The Burrards lead the WLA with a record of 4-1, and the Shamrocks have been uncharacteristically poor to start the season, having gone 1-3.
