When you are surrounded by awesome people, you try to search for awesome things you can do together. To help you out, I did some research to survive this very hot and long weekend.
You haven’t been to the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) yet? You should definitely go there. It’s a Vancouver tradition to celebrate the end of the summer. You can enjoy rides, shows, farm animals, midway games, food stalls and concerts all day long. This weekend the concerts are from Rick Springfield (Friday) and The Gypsy Kings (Saturday). The concerts are included in the price. There is a beer tasting festival as well.
On Sunday and Monday the iHeartRadio Beach Ball concerts are taking place featuring Alessia Cara, Liam Payne, The Stumbellas, Shawn Hook, Scott Helman, Virginia to Vegas, and Ralph (Sunday) and Train, Blondie, Serena Ryder, The Philosopher Kings, Ruth B and Christian Hudson (Monday). You can buy tickets online.
If you like it more multicultural this is the perfect weekend for you. In Richmond the free Richmond World Festival is taking place on 1 and 2 September. Or you can decide to go to Nikkei Matsuri, a Japanese festival in Burnaby. Polish Festival in Lynn Valley can also be an option for you on September 3. Last but not least there is also the Taiwanese Cultural Festival on Granville Street September 2 till September 4.
Because Monday is a free day, you can party on Sunday as well. In Vancouver’s downtown is a small event at Victory Square. It features live music from 2 to 9 pm.
To celebrate Labour Day this Monday, we are going to the free festival in Cleveland Park called ‘Music in the park’. What is better than drinking beers and listen to music outside in the park? Exactly, nothing!
Have a good weekend and hope to see you all at ‘Music in the park’.
