Vancouver Comic Arts Festival
The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is a weekend-long celebration of comics that enjoyed its launch in May 2012. The festival features readings, panels, and workshops, culminating in a two-day exhibition for cartoonists from across the country and down the coast.
International Summer Night Market
The *other* night market in Richmond. This one’s free and is a bit more calm then the other one with the giant duck. It’s got tons of food, tons of cheap booths, and… it’s free! Current location is a 10-acre site located at 12631 Vulcan Way (behind Home Depot on Sweden Way).
Vancouver’s only women’s charity obstacle adventure race in support of Easter Seals B.C., is back for a second year. This five-kilometer run features a dozen obstacles that test strength, agility and balance. Funds raised will send over 900 kids and young adults to accessible Easter Seals camps in B.C. 9am – 1pm at Swangard Stadium, Burnaby. $35 each.
We wish you all a nice weekend and hope that we will see you tonight @ the Pint.
