What to do on the weekend?

Another week is coming to an end, and we are not just looking forward to a regular weekend – no it is Labour Day Weekend, which means you have 3 days off! Yes, you got it right, Monday is a holiday. 🎉
But what to do with your three days of freedom?

You can enjoy an easy evening at the Lower Mainland’s massive Shipyard Night Market in North Vancouver. Wander around and just enjoy the local music, art, fresh food and regional products. It is the perfect location to spend a Friday evening – nothing too crazy, you can eat dinner there and just hang out with your friends while exploring what’s on offer.

How about exploring the outskirts of Vancouver? You could plan a daytrip with 40155928480_50ca0297d5_nsome friends, or on your own, to Vancouver Island, Whistler, White Rock or Squamish. While you can have an easy day in White Rock or in Victoria (Vancouver Island) just walking around the city exploring the cute roads and checking out the many shops, you could also get a lot more active in Whistler or Squamish. The wonderful nature offers many different hiking trails which will reward you with breathtaking views over landscapes you probably haven’t seen before.
Once you are back in the Van, the evening offers you another great thing to do: In North Vancouver you get the chance to enjoy some outdoor movies again! And it’s not just one movie, but two. In one night. Great, right?
At 8pm you can watch Finding Dory and at 10pm The Goonies.

Ever wondered how a Japanese festival would look? Well, this Sunday you have the chance to get to discover it. Make your way to Burnaby and try some typical Japanese food, watch a martial-arts show and enjoy an entire tea ceremony. Doesn’t this sound like fun?

Shops are closed today, but you still have loads of options to spend your time on this Monday. There is a Cyndi Lauper concert at the PNE, so get ready to have some fun singing along to her all-time classics and some new hits. If you don’t want to spend money on a ticket to her concert, why not visit the Taiwanese Festival in Downtown Vancouver. You can enjoy amazing Taiwanese culture, their food and even some Taiwanese art in the streets around Granville and Robson.

I hope you enjoy your weekend.
