The Fun Finder kicked off the weekend by teaming up with Robin and AJ for another great At Work Perk stop, this time at the General Ashton Armoury on Vanalman.  The cupcakes from Cupcakes at Uptown proved to be even more delicious than usual when AJ decided to taste test the military ration packs.

On Saturday, the Fun Finding Team set up the Ocean 98.5 Lock Box at Hillside Shopping Centre and stuffed it full of great prizes!  The hottest prize in the Lock Box – passes to the upcoming Night of Lights on 17 November!!!  After the code-cracking and colouring at Hillside Shopping Centre, the Fun Finding Team fueled up at Pho Halong Vietnamese Kitchen and headed over to Pearkes Recreation Centre for the Creative Craft Fair.  It’s never too early to get into the Christmas Spirit! There were tons of great offerings from local artists!

Sunday saw the Fun Finding Team explore the beauty of Sidney.  We stopped by the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea and tried to match up all our in-studio Ocean friends with live ocean creatures at the aquarium!  We were able to see the in-resident octopus, hang out with the anemones in the touch tank, and watched the volunteers feed the pacific spiny lumpsuckers.

After exploring the beautiful outdoors of the Sidney Pier, we headed indoors to the First & Last Chance Christmas Market at the Mary Winspear Centre. No luck under the mistletoe but we found some great local beef jerky!  And Ocean listener Gail found us – she heard our location on the radio and hunted us down between craft stalls!  A reward for her hard work – a gift card from Moxies!

Another fantastic weekend in and around Victoria!  This coming weekend, you can find the Fun Finding team throughout the city on Saturday and at Night of Lights at Hillside Shopping Centre, Sunday, November 17th from 6-930pm!!
