Here comes the sun and I say it’s all right. Spring is coming! According to the weather forecast, it will be sunny this weekend! Since we can finally plan activities outside again, let me give you some suggestions.
Saturday is a special day because… we’re celebrating Earth Day! Earth Day itself is actually Sunday the 22nd, however, celebrating it on a Saturday seems more convenient. Earth Day is an event celebrated worldwide. Its purpose is to raise awareness for the environment and help end plastic pollution. Plastic is damaging the planet to a great extent, including the ocean and its animals and us, humans, as well. Therefore, lets use this day to make a difference and appreciate the planet we are living on. The perfect way to do so? Go to the Earth Day Parade and Festival! There will be a march to the park, where food trucks and live music entertainment will be waiting for you.
Does a day filled with sun, music and delicious food sound good to you? Then I found a great event for you! This Sunday the 40th Annual Greek Food Fest will be happening in Vancouver. Prepare your body for lots of Greek food, such as baklava and tzatziki. The event lasts all weekend long.
Not into Greek food? No worries! Until the 29th of April, there is a Tulip festival in Chilliwack. The festival offers 20 acres of tulips in all the vibrant colours you can think of. Enjoy a nice stroll along the ‘Tulip path,’ delicious food from the various food trucks and take pictures to show your family and friends. The festival is opened from 9am until 6pm and tickets vary from $10 online and $15 on-site. It might take a while to get there, but since it’s Western Canada’s largest and most renowned Tulip Festival, it will definitely be worth it!
Of course, if you just want to take it easy, why not go to the park and enjoy the sun? Bring a blanket, some fun games and delicious food and you are guaranteed to have a fun, relaxing day before the busy workweek starts again.
I wish you all a great weekend! See you at the Earth Day Parade tomorrow!
