Building Blocks – Kensington Gardens Carnival and Food Truck Festival: Come One, Come All!


This sponsored feature takes an intimate look at real estate projects in and around Greater Vancouver, bringing you stories about the developers, the neighbourhoods and the homes themselves.

Today we’re bringing you an invitation to a free event you won’t want to miss!

Balloon twisting, stilt walkers and Kirk McLean. What do they all have in common? They’ll all be at Kensington Gardens’ Carnival and Food Truck Festival on November 23rd, 2013.


Located in the new heart of Vancouver at 2220 Kingsway, Kensington Gardens is an integrated urban community comprised of three unique residential towers, a collection of townhouses and a residential podium linked by an elevated landscaped courtyard, new park, lane and plaza.

In celebration of this exciting new master-planned community, Westbank, the developer, is inviting you and your entire family to Kensington Gardens’ Carnival where you’ll be among the first to tour the presentation centre, two-bedroom display home, and enjoy all the food and festivities!
