What to do on the weekend?

The first week of the year is already over. I can imagine you are still tired after working the first days of the year. But no worries, the weekend is here. If you still have no plans, keep reading and maybe I can help you out.

There are still a lot of Christmas activities going on. Go for example to Bright nights at Stanley Park, Canyon lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge, Festival of lights at VanDusen Garden or go the last weekend of Peak of Christmas on top of the Grouse Mountain.20171209_204526-2

On Saturday is the Nat Bailey Winter Famers Market at Vancouver’s Nat Bailey Stadium. Go to one of the many food trucks, music entertainers and all the other things you expect on a market: Fruits, Meats, baked goods, crafts etc. Prefer something drier? We are going to RIO Theater for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Expect trivia, games, fun and the most important thing: the Lord of the Ring movies.

On Sunday everybody is of course going to the church. Even when you’re not a really church person, you can check out St. Andrew’s Wesley United Church. This Sunday they have Jazz festival called Jazz Vespers. You can just walk in, admission is by donation.

Have a great weekend and I hope I will see everybody (in PJ’s or not) at the RIO Theater tomorrow!

INTERNeX Canada, What to do on the weekend.

This weekend is Canada Day weekend where pyrotechnics lighting up the summer night sky. Do not forget to catch the last shows of the Jazz festival before it end.  And is there anything more summery than Free Outdoor Movies, launching in Stanley Park, July 3.



To celebrate one of the biggest days in Canada, INTERNeX has decided to invite everyone for a day on the beach, if the weather permits it of course, but don’t worry we have a backup plan. For now we will just hope that the weather will be spectacular

Get ready to grab a blanket and pop the popcorn: July and August are the months for free outdoor movies—a summer tradition in Vancouver.

Showtimes start at dusk (around 9:20pm). Movies can get canceled due to rain/weather, so keep up-to-date by following Outdoor Movies BC on Twitter or with Fresh Air Cinema on Facebook.


Carnaval del Sol is coming to downtown’s Granville Street, this Saturday, June 30.  From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., five blocks of Granville from Hastings to Smithe Streets will be closed to traffic and filled with Latin music, food, dancing, performances and even a street soccer tournament.  Some 50,000 people are expected to turn out for one of the biggest parties of the summer.
