What to do on the weekend ?

Hello boys and girls!

Another week is over, so we will check out what is going on in Vancouver this weekend. It seems that the weather will not be so good (Saturday cloudy/sunny, Sunday rain), but this would not stop our activities.  

All of you should know, that there is the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival from Friday, June 21 to Sunday, June 23. The huge three-day event will take place around the creek at Concord Pacific Place, Creekside, and of course, in the waters.  The city´s biggest Dragon Boat celebration will also feature live music, entertainment, food, shopping, family fun, and local artisans.  It is definitely worth a visit! There will be no entry fee.

In addition to that the International Jazz Festival 2019 takes place this weekend in Downtown Vancouver. If you are interested in Jazz music, you should come to the Robson Square. The festival lasts two days, namely on the 22nd and 23rd June. You don´t have to pay for a lot of concerts. On both days different musicians are going to perform between 12pm and 9pm. To see the exact entry-free concert program, look at the website www.vancouversbestplaces.com .

Finally I want to remind you of our INTERNeX event on Sunday. We have planned a Barbecue at the Spanish Banks Beach. If you look at the current weather report, there will be rain on Sunday. And a Barbecue in the rain is definitely not fun. 

Due to that we will go out for Burger eating all together. We reserved a table on Sunday, the 23rd June at the White Spot (405 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1X4) at 6pm. 

We would be very happy if a lot of you come along for eating burgers with us. 48002939878_390603280c_o.jpeg

Those who have already paid for the BBQ can either pick up their money in the INTERNeX office or get it back at the dinner on Sunday.

 

Enjoy your weekend☺

What to do on the weekend?

“Temperatures reach up to 33 degrees Celsius in Metro Vancouver this weekend” Summer has arrived in Vancouver and Mother Nature doesn’t shy away from it. It might be boiling all day, but hey, at least it’s not raining or snowing. So, let’s embrace the weather and enjoy it while it lasts.

36299350672_cba25ec2e5_n1As you know (and if you don’t, you’re welcome) the Honda Celebration of Light is happening this weekend! This is a three-day competition with its focus on… lights. Every year, three countries display fireworks based on a specific theme. This year’s theme is ‘Love’. Whilst showing the public the fireworks they created, judges from the Metro Vancouver area will be there to rate every performance. Moreover, the audience can vote by downloading the Honda Celebration of Light mobile app. The festival kicks off with South Africa’s performance this Saturday, July 28th. The fireworks start at 10pm and can be admired from English Bay.

21391064296_f302cde675_nSince the fireworks don’t start until 10pm, you might want to do something else before that. I have a great idea for you! Columbia StrEAT Food Fest, the largest one-day food truck fest in Canada, is taking place this Saturday. This event includes hundreds of food trucks, eight beer gardens (yes, eight!) and live music. Sounds fantastic, right? Well, what makes it even more fantastic is that the admission is completely free! You just have to pay for the amazing food and beverages. You can visit this event from 4 until 10pm on Columbia Street in New Westminster.

Sunday, funday! Since the temperatures are rising this weekend, why not spend your Sunday enjoying the sun in the park? One of Port Moody’s Summer Sundays takes place this Sunday. They will provide live music, so if you bring a blanket, some games and snacks, you can have a nice, fun day in the park. The live music starts at 2pm.

Have a great weekend! See you tonight at our Pizza and Sunset event or tomorrow at the Celebration of Light!

PuB NiGHT Review – The Charles Bar

The Charles bar. A nice bar on the border of Gastown. Peaceful and quit. Until INTERNeX is having a PuB NiGHT there. Thanks to everyone who was there during this special edition of PuB NiGHT. We had a lot fun.

This PuB NiGHT everybody showed up in Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Not because they like Christmas Sweaters so much, but because we had an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest going on. Maxine was very creative by creating her own Ugly Christmas Sweater. And believe me, it was ugly. Others bought one of those typical ugly sweaters your great grandma will make you for your birthday. And Dawid, who won the competition, had a Santa sweater including beard and hat. 25400884_1560343360720996_182747180_o

Because not enough people saw all our nice ugly Christmas sweaters, we went again to the Met to show off our sweaters. We were not the only ones dressed that ugly. In fact, the whole pub was packed with a lot of people wearing ugly Christmas sweaters. After all our songs it was time to head home.

If you want to show even more people your ugly Christmas sweater, come to the Christmas party dressed up. Or when you already threw it away, wear your nicest Christmas clothes instead. Whatever you are going to wear, I hope to see you this Saturday for our Christmas party!

INTERNeX Canada: Mario Competing in the 2012 Karate BC Provincial Championship in 3 Days!

You may remember this little post about a month ago, where I wrote about a guy named Mario and his goal to raise money for children in need by fighting in the 2012 Karate BC Provincial Championship. The big day is here in just 3 short days and Mario has been training endlessly! With the event being so close, the excitement is definitely taking over.

Let me give you a little introduction of Karate. It is a type of martial arts that originated from Okinawa, Japan and was brought over to Canada by Japanese immigrants in the 1930s.

After the Second World War, the first karate competition in Canada was initiated by a man named Masami Tsuruoka which laid the foundation for the Canada`s National Karate Association. Though Karate is not an official sport in the Olympics, there are many tournaments that are held worldwide every year where Canada plays a significant part.

If are interested in learning more about the sport of Karate, I would encourage you to attend the tournament and in doing so, support Mario as well!

When? Saturday and Sunday (November 17th and 18th)

Where? BCIT GYM, 3700 Willingdon Ave, Burnaby

Why is Mario doing this? By making a comeback at the age of 50, Mario is supporting two charities with this event: Children’s Hunger Fund and BC Children’s Hospital.

Children’s Hunger Fund has been helping neglected orphans in Romania by sending over s regular shipments of food, medicine and clothing to 43,000 Romanian orphan daily. What is really admirable about this non-profit organization is that they seek to help children before disaster strikes!

BC Children’s Hospital is committed to helping children in our very own Vancouver community who are suffering from diseases such as leukemia and diabetes. They are very active in not just saving lives by curing children, but in preventing illnesses by conducting research into vaccines. With research being a vital part of their work, they were able to heal Adrian, the son of Mario’s friend, when he suffered from leukemia last year.

These charities are dedicated to helping children living right in our city that desperately require help. Join us in supporting them in creating better lives and future for children in need!

Thank you to everyone’s support and I hope that you will keep on supporting Mario and spreading the word about this event!
