What to do on the weekend?

Open the beer bottles, put on your casual clothes and prepare yourself for the parties. Weekend just started! For people who love the circus, Vancouver is the place to be. Maybe you already saw the big tents at the Pacific Boulevard and were wondering what is happening there. From this weekend on Cirque du Solei is giving big shows every weekend till December. Enjoy magic shows, acrobatics and much more.

On 31 October we will go to the Halloween party at nightclub Studio. You can sign up now, so you won’t miss this great party. Prepare yourself well by going Halloween shopping this Saturday. We will meet in front of Value Village to get the best costume for you. And we have got something special for you. We will give away two free tickets! One ticket for the person with the scariest costume and the other ticket for the person with the funniest costume.

After the shopping there is enough time to go to the Kitsilano Autumn Fair. This is a free community event with a lot of activities both indoor and outdoor. The event will take place from 10 am till 3 pm.

Of course there are a lot of Halloween events going on like Ghost Train in Stanley Park, Fright Nights at Playland or Bear Creek Halloween Trains and Potter’s House of Horrors in Surrey. Whatever you decide to do, or decide to do nothing at all, I hope you have a great weekend!

What to do on the weekend?

The week is almost over and people are starting to get ready for the weekend. I hope you all had a great week and are ready for an awesome weekend as well. Got any plans for the weekend yet? No? There is a lot to do this weekend, so that also means there is a lot of choice for you!

First of all, the INTERNeX family is going to celebrate Chinese New Year at the Chinese New Year Parade this Sunday. 15965745_10154886634952103_8586645978562399909_n
However, if you do not have time to go to the parade, there are plenty of events left to attend as well. It already starts at the 28th of January with a cooking demonstration in Lonsdale Quay Market. After that you can also watch the traditional Eye-Dotting Ceremony at 2 pm or the Lion Dance after.

On Sunday you can also show your best moves during the VSO New Music Festival: On a Wire! You can enjoy an amazing electric music performance of Bramwell Tovey and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. If you love electric music, you should definitely check this out! The music festival takes place in Orpheum at 601 Smithe Street. It starts at 7.30 pm, so you can even plan other activities during the day. Please make sure to buy tickets beforehand to ensure a spot. Tickets cost $30 for an adult and if you still got a student card, you can get a ticket for only $22.50.

This weekend the event Cuisine & Confessions takes place in Vancouver Playhouse. The performance is a combination of a kitchen and circus. Make sure not to wear your nicest clothes, as their will be food throwing involved. Even though this performance is quite pricy, it is still worth your time. Prices range from $45 to $60.

Another event that you may have noticed this week is Street Food City. During Street Food City you can find over 25 food trucks in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The food trucks mostly offer local food for a pretty good price. This weekend will be your last chance to try local food at one of these food trucks. If you go there, eat as much as you can and tell your flatmates that you will not join dinner, as you will definitely leave the event with a full stomach. Time for a break? While enjoying your meal or taking a break, you can listen to some music.

I hope to see you on Sunday at the Chinese New Year Parade. If not, have a great weekend anyways and see you at PuB NiGHT!

VANCOUVER

Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair. May 20 -23, 2011
The 2011 Cloverdale Rodeo is gearing up for its biggest and best May Long Weekend yet in honour of its 65th anniversary. With some of the world’s top cowboys and cowgirls and more than $360,000 in prize money.

The Country Fair features the Fraser Valley’s largest Midway with tons of rides and games. The Fair also has mechanical bull riding, 4H and animal displays, live stage performances, lumberjack show, parade and much more!

I have to admit it will take 1,5 hour to go there from downtown Vancouver because it’s in Cloverdale (Surrey) but it will be a nice day out! 🙂
