What to do on the weekend?

This weekend INTERNeX is going to the Honda Celebration of lights, an annual musical fireworks competition between different country representatives. The first one will be Japan this Saturday! We are meeting at 8pm at Sunset beach to set up some blankets, play some games, watch the sunset and then enjoy the fireworks, which are shooting from a boat located at English Bay. Bring some snacks and layered clothes since it’s still getting cold at night.

On Sunday INTERNeX is planning a trip to Playland which will be so much fun! We’ve got Thrill passes that allow us to go on almost all the rides. This day is only for the brave ones amongst us. 😉 Are you coming? Which ride are you looking forward to the most?

Are you more into chill activities, like arts and crafting? I’ve got the perfect activity for you. The Eastside Arts Society (EAS) presents CREATE! Arts Festival taking place on July 23rd at Strathacona Park. It brings together local visual and performing artist and the community to explore, learn, and create art together through a series of affordable workshops and public art activities. There’s also beer and wine trucks around 😉 Tickets and information: createartsfestival.ca

Have you been to Granville Island yet? If not, then I’d recommend you go. It’s a really nice area underneath the Granville bridge with a big market, cute shops and really good food! The area reminds me a small fisher town, surrounded by water with industrial manufacturing. I like to go to the food court, but there’s also many restaurants around. You can get almost everything there, e.g. Salmon candy. Yes, that’s right I said Salmon candy. In fact, my quest for you is to go to Granville Island, find it and try it! Let me know what you think. 😉

I look forward to hearing about your weekend!

See you around.


Laura 🙂
