TGIF! It is almost weekend and instead of today’s weather, the weekend is going to be great, so you can start planning outdoor activities again! To give you some inspiration, we lined up a few events that you could go to.
When summer arises, festivals do too and there is one you should definitely check out this weekend: the Surrey Fusion Festival. You have to catch the skytrain for a bit to Holland Park, but that is all worth it since this is a FREE festival. It showcases and celebrates the cultural diversity of Surrey and features 70 performances on 4 stages over two days. Besides that you can enjoy food from around the world and as cherry on top: Nelly Furtado is the headliner.
If you want to take it more slowly, you can also go to the Summer Jam at Trout Lake. This is a community event where people can chill and jam around and bring their own food and drinks for a nice and relaxing day.
Want to go back in time? Go to the Rio Theatre and sing-a-long with John Travolta in the famous movie musical: Grease. They have lyrics on the screen, treat bags and even a costume contest! You can either go tonight or on Saturday night. Doors open at 6.30pm and the movie will start at 7.30pm.
Just looking for a day at the beach? You might want to go to Kitsilano Pool then. This giant saltwater pool is right at Kits Beach, which gives you a great lookout over the city! After your swimming day you can stroll straight into Local for some refreshing drinks. This is a nice bar with a big patio right above Kitsilano Pool, so a great place to end your afternoon.
I hope you all have a great weekend with lots of sunshine and I hope to see you all again on Wednesdays PuB NiGHT!
