It is Friday again which means we will provide some tips for the weekend again!
This is a special weekend since it is St. Patrick’s Day and there will be lots of parties! The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Besides that it celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, and especially doing that in green clothes! Many pubs in Vancouver will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and you can easily find information through Facebook events in the area. The INTERNeX PR-team will be at Caprice nightclub and at the Yale Saloon, so feel welcome to join us there!
When you are ready for another day after a big party tonight, then please join us at the Celticfest on Saturday. There are a lot of free activities on Robson Square as part of the CelticFest, so it would be fun to check it out with you! We will meet in front of Sport Check at 2:00 pm.
Rather go to a market? Head to the Lonsdale Quay Market and enjoy some local vendors. This market will be in the spirit of St. Patrick’ s Day, since you can enjoy a good Irish stew here. The market will be held from 10 am till 3 pm.
But if you are not into Irish celebrations, you can get in entirely different spirits at the UBC Holi 2017. This is a free event that celebrates the Hindu spring festival, also known as “festival of colours” or the “festival of love”. There are several food trucks and you can purchase colour packets at the festival itself. It will be held on Saturday from 11 am till 3 pm at 6359 Agronomy Road.
If you don’ t feel like having a party at all this weekend, there is always the option of stalking your favourite movie star in Vancouver. This may sound random, but we live in the Hollywood of the north. Many TV-shows and movies are filmed here, and there is a website which shows you exactly what movie is going to be filmed where and at what time. Go to creativebc.com and you will find out!
Have a great St. Patrick’s day and an amazing weekend!
