Victoria and surrounding communities were among more than 83 communities to celebrate Spirit of BC Week 2007. A Swim and Health Day involved a free family swim with a health fair set up around the perimeter of the pool and on the mezzanine. The fair featured a series of stations providing educational information, interactive opportunities, and demonstrations, such as the Eat Well Get Moving Program; parenting Workshops; Healthy Eating Options; and Imagination market. Swim relays and other pool games were led by the swim club.
In addition, Winterfest transformed Pearkes Recreation Centre into a magical winter wonderland. The festival featured a pancake breakfast hosted by Saanich Neighbourhood Place with proceeds going to a food bank; a huge indoor fun space including a bouncy castle, kinder gym equipment, and face painters; on-ice activities and games of chance; and an appearance from a special children's entertainer. There were also door prizes, art activities and exhibitors.
