What to do on the weekend?

Friday, the 13th. This day is mostly associated with bad luck and unfortunate events. But HOW can a Friday be connoted so badly? I am just happy it is the weekend. Finally! 🎉🌞
But now that we arrived at the long-awaited best two days of the week the question “What to do on these sunny days?” is popping up.

So, what’s on this weekend?
Some of you might have already heard about it: The Vancouver Folk Music Festival. It 36299308392_e6dc6c5cdb_ntakes place the entire weekend and is a must-go. More than 40 artists from all over the world will perform in Jericho Beach Park on five different stages. Go ahead, get your friends together and enjoy some good music! 🎶

The music does not really catch you? Maybe a night a Playland is more your taste. Since a few weeks every Friday Playland opens its doors in the evening for 19+ only. You can enjoy all the rides and rollercoasters as at daytime but with just adults. Sounds like fun, eh? And don’t even worry about the price, it is even cheaper than a day pass. 🍻🎢

You don’t feel like spending too much money on activities? I can tell you that Saturday has something on offer for you: At the Roundhouse Community Centre the French National Holiday is celebrated from 10 in the morning until 10 in the night. July 14th, 9599513307_3e5da59ce2_nalso knows as Bastille Day, gives you the opportunity to experience the French culture a little better. Try French wine, cheese and pastries while listening to typical French music and tunes. 🧀🥐🥖
If you are not interested, the Fifth Annual Ultimate Car Show in Coquitlam might catch your attention a little more. From 10am to 3pm you can look at over 300 exhibits and watch awards given away in seven categories: Best Truck, Best Paint, Best Interior, Best Classic, Best Hot Rod, Best Muscle Car and BEST IN SHOW. 🚗

For Sunday morning I can advise you to go to a Pub to watch the Final of the World Cup. France and Croatia fought their way until the final and will compete on Sunday at 8am (PDT).
In case this is to early for you, you can sleep in and just spend a relaxing day at the beach. It’s supposed to get up to 27°C, so get your towels out, don’t forget sunscreen and enjoy this amazing weather! 🌞🏖️

I hope you have a great weekend. See you on Sunday for the Final or afterwards for the hike up Grouse Grind!

INTERNeX Canada: Feel like a real DJ!

It´s great when you are in a nice club and you hear your favorite song! In that moment nothing is important you just focus in the song and you feel like the world is yours! So imagine if the party is not just a party is THE PARTY, the season´s event, our tenth anniversary!

And what about to listen a typical song of your country in Canada? Everywhere I´ve been I´ve listened Macarena! Definitely is not my favorite song but it always makes me smile and remind me home, despite I don´t usually listen Macarena in Spain!

So now we give you the opportunity of feeling like a real David Guetta! And singing in German/Dutch/French/Italian/Arabic/Chinese/ or whatever your native language are while everybody will ask themselves what´s that?

Sounds like fun!

Just sent us your favorite song ever to pr@interexcanada.com and it will play for you in the Summer Party!

Looking foward to listen your selection!

Cheers

Irene

Paris’ art is in Vancouver !!!

As you may know, the famous art gallery of Vancouver opened an exhibition from Paris two months ago and it will remain open until the 6th of September. My favorite French museum, the museum of Orsay, brings 100 works from the most famous French painters of the 19th century. Renoir! Pissaro! Rodin! Toulouse-Lautrec! And many others…

You might think that I want to see this exhibition because I’m French and from Paris, or because I know the grand-child of the painter Seurat… While this may be true, this exhibition is a must see for everyone. These paintings are coming from a museum as good and as famous as the Louvres which has more French masterpieces than any other museum in the world!

It would be a shame to miss this, wouldn`t it? Especially when it’s so easy to have fun and get some culture at the same time! Moreover, many of the drawings you will find there never went out of Paris.

The topic of this exhibition is The Modern Woman. Don’t be scared men, it’s just the look of many painters at a time when women just started to be independent and offer artists a new perspective!

It’s a daily exhibition that is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. so you can go there whenever you want!

Looking for tickets? Admission is $22.50 for adults, $16 for students!

Details: 604-662-4719 and vanartgallery.bc.ca

I will be there on Sunday afternoon and hope to meet you in one of the rooms enjoying a piece of European History!
