Held on the first Saturday of every June, Hats Off Day is when Heights merchants "take their hats off" to their community and their customers, and the entire Heights community celebrates together. It's a huge, one-day extravaganza featuring a colourful main-street style parade with real local flavor, followed by a big street party.
The Heights is one of the best kept secrets in the Lower Mainland with a strong sense of community, beautiful views, parks and trails, recreational amenities, rich Canadian history, and a thriving business district all within walking distance. Swing on by the Heights, where the merchants know your name. The Heights is a Business Improvement District (BIA) located in North Burnaby on Hastings Street from Boundary Road to Gamma Avenue. The Heights is home to more than 350 businesses with a variety of shops, offices, and restaurants.
