It’s FRIDAY! I always get really excited, not only because it means I have two days off, but because I get to go out and explore all that Vancouver has to offer! So here are some ideas to make your weekend a great one!
This weekend the INTERNeX family will go to Whistler, so there are no extra activities besides that. But if you want to have fun you can go to PlayDome at BC Place. PlayDome is the largest indoor carnival in Western Canada with over 45 rides and attractions! Definitely something you want to check out if you’re into attraction parks or carnivals. For only $29 you get a day pass that allows you to go on all the rides!
If you would rather go for something a bit more cultural you should go check out the Central Public Library on 350 W Georgia St. The Collosseum like building holds over 1.4 million items and it is pretty impressive to see. It’s the perfect place to go on a rainy day.
Like every weekend there are a few markets you can visit. On Sunday there is the Port Moody Winter Farmers Market at Hastings Park from 10 am till 2 pm. Or you could visit Steveston Village, a cute little town in Richmond. TV series such as Once Upon A Time were filmed there, so you might recognise some of it! While you’re there you can visit The Cannery Farmers market at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, which is a massive Britannia Heritage Shipyard and a National Historic site, from 10 am till 3 pm.
If you prefer to see a bit of nature you can visit the Pacific Spirit Park which is located at UBC. This weekend they have the annual Night Quest where they have 2 kilometres of lantern lit trails. This will be from 7 till 9:30 pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening and is for free.
I hope you guys have a great weekend and I’ll see you
tomorrow at Whistler or next week on PuB NiGHT, which will be a special one…
