It is summer in Vancouver, which means that there is a lot going on. So it shouldn’t be too hard to find an activity that fits for you. Here are some suggestions on what you could do during this weekend.
On Saturday the INTERNeX family is going to spend their day at Jericho Beach. First we will have a barbecue (bring your own food) and watch the fireworks at Celebration of Lights after. Celebration of Lights is a fireworks competition that is been held in July and August. It is seen as a must do if you are spending your summer in Vancouver.
If you would rather watch sports then you could watch the baseball game Vancouver Canadians vs. Tri-City Dust Devils on Saturday or Sunday. Before the actual game they will blow you away with fireworks too, so even though you are not going to the Celebration of Lights, you are still not missing out on the fireworks!
Vancouver would not exist without its food scene, so if you want to experience that then you should check out the Columbia Street Food Truck Fest. This is a street festival with around 100 food trucks that takes place in New WestMinister on Saturday. If you actually had enough food this month and would rather work out instead, then you could join the Night Nation Run Vancouver at Saturday. It is 5 km long run that starts at PNE in the evening.
On Sunday there are a few free concerts that you might want to check out! In North Vancouver you can listen to the Beatles tribute band The Day Trippers. Besides that you can also go to Burnaby for a free evening concert.
Have a great weekend and see you at Celebration of Lights event at Jericho beach (4pm Saturday) or next week’s PuB NiGHT!
