What to do on the weekend

Only a few more hours till the weekend! The weather on Saturday isn’t going to be that good, but Sunday should be a little better.


On Sunday the INTERNeX gang will be going to Granville Island. There is a public market with lots of food, so make sure you come with an empty stomach! There are also a lot of cute little shops.

However, if that’s not enough food for you, you can always go to the Surrey Greek Food Festival. This is a community festival whit a lot of Greek food. You can go on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and there is no admission fee.

Another option is going to Commercial Drive on Sunday for Italian Day on the Drive, this street festival celebrates Italy. And while you’re on Commercial Drive you should do a little pub crawl through all the micro breweries that you can find there. At the micro breweries you can get a couple of tasters for a few dollars.

If you would rather do something relaxing but cheap, you can go to the family favourites movies at Cineplex for $2.99. At 11 AM on Saturday they will show A Dogs Purpose at select theatres.

Like every weekend there are a lot of farmers markets. On Friday night there is the Richmond Night Market and the Illumination Summer Night Market. On Saturday you can go to markets in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Fort Langley, Maple Ridge, Trout Lake and Squamish. And on Sunday you can go to Ambleside, Coquitlam, Kitsilano, Ladner, White Rock and Whistler.

I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you at PuB NiGHT!

Vancouver Farmers Market
Sunday is the best day to get out and go for a nice walk to Kitsilano and visit the farmers market. The market is held at the parking lot of Kitsilano’s community centre. Get some nice fruit and have a nice stroll along the waterfront of Kits. More information can be found here.

Intro To Granville Island

Granville Island - Public Market

If you’re new to Canada, specifically Vancouver, you’re probably looking for a place of attraction and representative of the Canadian culture.

One of the place you should stop by is Granville Island.  It is a place located in the middle of an island.  In it, you will meander through many chic shops filled with culture – souvenirs unique to Canada, some specially made by artists.

Granville Island has an eclectic collection of art, artisan beverages, international food, and exciting entertainment.  There will always be a musician inside the Public Market belting out a tune.

Alot of the food are from farmer’s markets.  Therefore, the fruit and baked goods are fresh, locally grown, and organic.

I will blog further information on Granville Island later on.

Stay tuned for attractions, cruises, and fresh market place foods and flowers!!
