What to do this (thanksgiving) weekend?

The count down can begin. Just a couple more hours before you can start enjoying a long weekend. Don’t know what to do yet? We listed some nice activities for you, so you don’t have to get bored this weekend.

This weekend the Oktoberfest parties started. If you want to celebrate Oktoberfest, there are a couple places to go. You can go to Oktoberfest #DASORIGINAL in the Alpen Club or Harvest House in the Sole Food Street Farms. For people who love Halloween, this weekend also starts different Halloween activities. Go to the Fright Nights at Playland or Potter’s Haunted House in Surrey. For all those activities a ticket is required. If you didn’t go to the Vancouver Film Festival, this weekend will be your last change to go.

Tonight we are going to the White spot to have a thanksgiving turkey diner. We hope to see everybody there to have a nice real thanksgiving experience while you’re in Canada. Afterwards we will go out all together.

Saturday is a good day to visit the look out tower. Tickets cost $17,50 (or $12,50 for students). But because it’s thanksgiving weekend, we want to thanks giving some tickets away for free. The only thing you have to do is sending a video with your best turkey impression and send it to us. The ones with the best impression gets their tickets for free! Winners will be announced tonight. Not a fan of heights? You can also go to the Vancouver Wild Salmon Caravan 2017 Parade this Saturday.

On thanksgiving Monday, you maybe want to visit Granville Island. A Granville island turkey trot is happening this day. This is a run for kids with all kind of side activities on Granville Island. Or go to the Vancouver Aquarium to come nose to snout with Steller Sea Lions.

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the Weekend?

Happy November!! How is your week going? This weekend, I will hopefully be going skydiving! (finger crossed that the weather behaves well.)

Though, November is not necessary one of those months that you are too excited about because it’s between holiday seasons. But, here are some important events going on this weekend that will make you change your mind!

DAYLIGHT SAVING ENDS – Change your clocks!

You will absolutely want to, actually NEED TO, attend to this event! On Sunday, at 2am, turn your clocks back one hour (so it becomes 1am).  That’s right change your phone, watch, microwave…whatever! The clocks are going back to Standard time in Vancouver which means that while you are losing an hour of daylight -not that there is much lately – you are gaining one hour of sleep!

  • When? 2am on Sunday or before you head to bed!
  • Why? As days get shorter and shorter in the Autumn and Winter, you want to take advantage of whatever sunshine that is available, so turning the clocks back will allow you to wake up when the sun comes up.

For more information, take a look at this website.

STEVESTON TRIP

Join us on Sunday is exploring Vancouver’s famous fishing village – Steveston! Once home to Canada’s largest fishing fleer of more than 600 vessels, Steveston Village is now an idyllic village where you can eat the best fish and chips and buy fresh seafood directly from the fishermen at the dock for a lower price! If seafood isn’t your thing, there are many cute little gift and antique shops, delicious frozen yogurt and a beautiful garden in the town center. Don’t forget to bring your camera, you will definitely need it!

You know you want to come, so just click attend on our Facebook event!

MOVEMBER

November means Movember in Canada! What does this mean? This time every year, men grow their “Mo’s” to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives! So if you start seeing moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, don’t panic. In fact, I think men with moustaches are quite attractive. To participate, all you men can simply register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face…. And of course, let the moustache grow!

  • When? November 1st to 30th
  • Where? On your faces!
  • Cost? FREE and for a good cause!

For more information, check out their Facebook page.

VAFF: 16th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival

Vancouver has the biggest Asian population in Canada, so why not watch films that are made by some of the most prominent Canadian and American Asian filmmakers. All films are in English or have English subtitles. You might recognize some of the stars such as Sung Kang (The Dark Knight), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee) and Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga)!

  • When? Thursday, Nov. 1st to Sunday, Nov. 4th
  • Where? Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas
    88 W Pender Street
    Vancouver, BC V6B 6N9

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

So I just checked three different weather forecast websites to get inspired about what I could possibly propose to you as cool stuff for this weekend in Vancouver. I soon figured this was pointless as they pretty much only told me that it’s fall now and I should probably bring an umbrella – just to be on the safe side. Here are some great suggestions regardless of the weather:

  • Culture Days 2012: Vancouver Latin Event

Come celebrate united with 21 Spanish speaking countries that share the same language, music, arts and film. Experience the Latin flavor and feel the rhythm dancing Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata and Cha Cha Cha. Free dance lessons start at 8am, continuing till 10pm and followed by dancing till after 2am. No cover, no fee for the dance lessons all night!!! For info and reservations call Robbie Sanchez at (604) 355 1416 and find out more online.

When & where? Sat 29th & Sun 30th, 395 Kingsway Ave, Howard Johnson Hotel

  • Vancouver Film Festival 

VIFF is among the five largest film festivals in North America as it screens films from 80 countries on 10 screens. The international line-up includes the pick of the world’s top film fests and many undiscovered gems.  VIFF 2011 included 20 World premieres, 30 International premieres, 49 North American premieres and 40 Canadian premieres. As the critics say, VIFF is very much a festival “designed for the benefit of people who love films and people who make them.” Check out the schedule and ticket prices here.

When & where? Sept 27th – October  12th  @  Vancouver’s movie theatres

  • Owl City concert 

Do you remember the catchy song “Fireflies” from like 3 years ago? Yep, that’s the band I’m talking about. They are playing downtown tonight and tickets are only $35 (including fees)! Hurry up and get them here.

When and Where? Friday, Sept 28th, Commodore Ballroom, Granville St

Only recently, Owl City released their new album with the lead single “Good Time” featuring the Canadian sensation Carly Rae Jepsen (“Call me maybe”). Take this happy pop song as a start into another weekend. 🙂

Hope you guys have a GOOD TIME.

Cheers

Exposé of the week – Toronto

Since one of our INTERNeX offices is located on the other side of Canada, I would like to introduce this nice place to you. Toronto, the largest city in Canada and the fifth most populous city in North America walks the line between multiculturalism and resolute northern independence. Masters of this balancing act are the Torontonians who embrace both worlds with open-mindedness and excitement.

Toronto is a center for theatre and other performing arts, with six opera companies, two symphony orchestras, more than fifty ballet and dance companies and dozens of theatres.

The production of foreign and domestic film and television is an important local industry. The Toronto International Film Festival, which takes place in September, is one of the most important annual events of the international film industry.

Besides, Toronto’s Caribana Festival is one of the largest annual street festivals in North America, taking place from mid-July until early August. It is primarily based on the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival and took place in 1967 for the first time. More than 40 years later, it attracts more than one million visitors to Toronto’s Lake Shore Boulevard each year.

Another exciting event is the Pride Week which takes place in late June and is known as one of the largest LGBT festivals in the world. It also, next to the Caribana Festival , one of the largest events in the city attracting more than one million people from all around the world.

It sounds like there is a lot to do, right? 🙂

Have you ever been in Toronto? How did you like it?

Cheers,

Ziska
