Wildbear Weekend is back for a fifth year with another Thanksgiving long weekend full of events and raising funds for Camp Moomba.
Started in 2010, Wildbear Weekend has grown from a single day to a four day long weekend of parties and other events targeting the bear community and those that love them. Each year, funds are raised for Camp Moomba, a Vancouver charitable organization that helps to send children impacted with HIV/AIDS to summer camp.
