What to do on the weekend?

Hi all!

There are plenty of things to do this weekend! June is packed with free festivals. Check this out!

VANCOUVER

Dragon Boat Festival
One of the biggest free festivals—attracting over 100,000 people—is the Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival, happening June 11 – 12, 2011.

Now in its 23rd year, the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival is a two-day event centred around the dragon boat races. Over 180 teams compete in races that take place in False Creek and finish at Science World, where the Festival’s free entertainment happens. From Science World, you can watch the races, enjoy non-stop live music and entertainment on the World Beat Stage, and grab great festival food at the many vendors on-site.
The Dragon Boat races are an annual tradition for many Vancouverites, who train for the races with work colleagues, friends and family. They also epitomize Vancouver’s multiculturalism, bringing together teams from across the Lower Mainland to participate in a sport—dragon boat racing—that originated in China over 2000 years ago.
