Watch a Movie under the Stars!

Imagine sitting in Stanley Park on a warm summer night after a long day at work with a mild breeze drifting through the trees and people gathering beneath the starts to watch a great movie in a outdoor setting! Outdoor movies are a fun, unique way to enjoy a movie under the stars! It is like a drive-in movie, only without a car! You can bring your own folding chair or blanket to sit on.

Every Wednesday Night FreshAir Cinema shows a different movie in Vancouver’s beautiful Stanley Park. This week they are showing The Goonies. The Goonies is a 1985 American adventure-comedy film directed by Richard Donner. It’s about a band of kids from the “Goon Docks” neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon – hoping to save their homes from demolition – who go on an adventure to find the buried treasure of One-Eyed Willy, a legendary 17th-century pirate.

Summer Time is the Best Time!

I just absolutely love summertime. Fresh, cool air breezes through the city and brings with it the aroma of sizzling meat on the barbecue. In Vancouver, the groups of people clustered on Robson Street signal the latest in-store sales and product promotions. In Toronto, the  GO trains become packed with Blue Jays fans waiting to see Ricky Romero wind up on the pitcher’s mound. Ahhh, summer.

This past Saturday was a great summer day for myself and some friends. If you live in Vancouver and were anywhere near Gastown this past weekend, you know that the Vancouver International Jazz Festival was on. As we strolled down Water Street, the atmosphere surrounding us was uplifting. Magicians and jugglers lined the streets, welcoming any and all spectators. Nearby pubs were packed with jazz fans yearning for a pint. Lemonade stands and corn on the cob stations offered food to satisfy anyone’s taste buds and two different stages hosted the smooth, rhythmic beats of Jazz.

Looking around, I couldn’t help but really feel a part of something that day. People lucky enough to live in Gastown hung out their windows, watching the live performances from the comfort of their own home. The crowds watching the shows were both young and old, tourists and Vancouverites alike – all coming to enjoy the same genre of music. It was a great day!

If you didn’t get the chance to go out this past weekend – shame on you…buuuutt don’t worry. The Jazz festival will continue until July 4, 2010.  For more information on show times and locations, visit the website.
