CelticFest – Experience IT Review

On Saturday we went to CelticFest at Robson square. It was great to see you even though a lot of you celebrated St. Patrick’s Day the night before. Thank you for coming!

During CelticFest we were celebrating the Irish national holiday St. Patrick’s Day. On this day, the Irish commemorate the holy Sint-Patricius. However, a lot of Irish people just see it as a day to celebrate being Irish and as a reason to drink. One of the activities organised during the week of St. Patrick’s Day is CelticFest. CelticFest is an annual festival being held throughout the city of Vancouver. There were several activities organised throughout the week. Some of these activities were free of charge, such as the parade and the CelticFest activities at Robson square.

We were really lucky with the weather. Saturday was a sunny day and therefore it was really nice to hang out at the CelticFest. At first we walked around and passed some small stands with green and Irish clothing. After that we watched a band playing some typical Irish music. Besides that we also watched an Irish dan17431010_10202849062023362_2021569902_oce performance at the Beer garden and at the Robson square. As the weather was so nice, we decided to go to Canada Place to watch the view. Then we went to Tap&Barrel and enjoyed some drinks, nachos and hummus. We also could not resist the free nacho refills. When we finally filled our stomachs, we finished our day with watching the seaplanes take off.

I hope you enjoyed the great weather this weekend! See you on PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

It is Friday again which means we will provide some tips for the weekend again!

This is a special weekend since it is St. Patrick’s Day and there will be lots of pacelticfestrties! The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Besides that it celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, and especially doing that in green clothes! Many pubs in Vancouver will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and you can easily find information through Facebook events in the area. The INTERNeX PR-team will be at Caprice nightclub and at the Yale Saloon, so feel welcome to join us there!

When you are ready for another day after a big party tonight, then please join us at the Celticfest on Saturday. There are a lot of free activities on Robson Square as part of the CelticFest, so it would be fun to check it out with you! We will meet in front of Sport Check at 2:00 pm.

Rather go to a market? Head to the Lonsdale Quay Market and enjoy some local vendors. This market will be in the spirit of  St. Patrick’ s Day, since you can enjoy a good Irish stew here. The market will be held from 10 am till 3 pm.

But if you are not into Irish celebrations, you can get in entirely different spirits at the UBC Holi 2017. This is a free event that celebrates the Hindu spring festival, also known as “festival of colours” or the “festival of love”. There are several food trucks and you can purchase colour packets at the festival itself. It will be held on Saturday from 11 am till 3 pm at 6359 Agronomy Road.ubcholi

If you don’ t feel like having a party at all this weekend, there is always the option of stalking your favourite movie star in Vancouver. This may sound random, but we live in the Hollywood of the north. Many TV-shows and movies are filmed here, and there is a website which shows you exactly what movie is going to be filmed where and at what time. Go to creativebc.com and you will find out!

Have a great St. Patrick’s day and an amazing weekend!
