What to do on the weekend

Another week is nearly over aaaand it’s time to get out and enjoy the weekend. Haven’t yet decided what to do? No panic. Have a look at these suggestions.

This weekend a very cool circus is opening its doors for you. It’s called Circusfest and is taking place from November 7th till November 9th in several locations around Vancouver. If you like Cirque du Soleil you’ll definitely like the Circusfest. The circus includes spectacular performances by humans only, and it combines circus with theatre. Go watch the Golden Gatsby Cabaret which is inspired by the 1930s, or experience a reinterpretation of Alice in Wonderland including aerial acrobatics that will definitely keep you entertained. You’ll find more of these circus performances in Vancouver. You can watch the Golden Gatsby Cabaret on Friday, November 7th, at 10:30pm at 1895 Venables Street. For more information on this show click here. The Alice in Wonderland show takes place  and Saturday, November 8th, at 4:30pm at the PNE Hastings Park in the Garden Auditorium. Click here for more information on this show. Watch the Circusfest promo video to get inspired.

And don’t forget our weekend activity at Extreme Air Park on Saturday at 1pm. Of course you can use the Cirkusfest as a warmup 🙂 Sign up for this activity here.

To finish of a nice Saturday go to the Improv TheatreSports. Two teams are competing against each other in a theatre competition, where it’s the audience who decides the themes. After being given a theme each team has to improvise different situations. This should be lots of fun! The Improv ThetreSports event takes place at Granville Island at the Improv Centre on Saturday, November 8th, at 9:30pm. Look here for more information.

Finally, to end a perfect weekend go enjoy some Blues at the Sunday Blues Revue. Every Sunday from 5pm till 9pm you’ll have the opportunity to experience real New Orleans style Blues in a New Orleans inspired venue. Is that cool… It think so! Have a look here for more info.

Have a great weekend!

Ride the Ghost Train

 

Ride aboard the Ghost Train!

 

Since I am a BIG fan of Halloween, I love writing about the many events happening around Vancouver and nearby cities that you can participate in to test how brave you are in the face of terror.  

I went aboard Stanley Park’s Ghost Train last year, and it was a very fun experience! 

This year, the theme is “Alice in Nightmareland”.  Of course, if you are familiar with Disney’s classic, “Alice in Wonderland”, you will know what kind of theme they are going with.  It will be Alice in Wonderland turned upside-down.  

What does that mean? 

You will follow the rabbit down the rabbit-hole, only this is deep into a nightmare and not a dream.  On your ghost train ride, you will encounter demonic playing cards, the evil and feisty queen who is always on the lookout, screaming “off with your head”! 

Just remember to come out with your head intact in the process.

If you prefer to skip the train, there is also an illuminating assortment of lights and Halloween-themed displays.  In addition, you get access into the Haunted Farmyard.  In there, you will see all kinds of creatures, even live ones!
