What to do on the weekend?

3, 2, 1 and it’s weekend again! And even though the weather forecast doesn’t seem too promising, there are many things going on in and around Vancouver to brighten your mood. Here’s a selection of activities that you can do the upcoming two days.

All weekend, you can visit the West Vancouver Spring Carnival. Many rides, games and delicious carnival treats are waiting for you. On Saturday it’s from 12pm until 11pm and on Sunday from 12pm until 7pm. Just go to the Ambleside Park (1150 Marine Dr, West Vancouver) to join the fun. Tickets are available on side and the pricing is as followed:

  • Single Gold Ticket: $1.25
  • Red Book (20): $23.00
  • Blue Book (40): $45.00
  • $40 wristbands daily

On Sunday, you have the chance to see hawks and owls up close. From 11am until 3pm, there is the hawk and owl show going on at Richmond Nature Park (11851 Westminster Hwy, Richmond). Admission is by donation, so why not take the chance to get to see those wonderful animals from a closer distance?

And if you want to be a bit active, you should join the event Bike the Blossoms. It’s a free cycling event which is part of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival. The starting point is at Trout Lake and the end is at Queen Elizabeth Park. The 10 to 12km route is taking you through the streets where the most beautiful cherry blossom trees are at. The event is from 11am until 1pm, bring your own bike or rent one from MOBI from the local station.

I hope you have tons of fun this weekend. See you all at our Dutchie for a Day event on Saturday!

What to do on the weekend?

Wooaaah people! Have you seen the weather forecast for this weekend?! It is going to be full of sunshine and the temperatures are above 10 degrees. I think spring has finally sprung and summer is just around the corner. Well, almost. But for now, what can you do on these promising upcoming days? Let me give you a bunch of ideas.Beautiful weather at Stanley Park

Are you a fan of exotic reptiles? Then you should go on Saturday or Sunday to the Richmond Nature Park where you can meet snakes, lizards and geckos during an exotic reptiles show. You can enjoy this fun from 11am until 4pm and admission is granted by donation.

Oh, you don’t like exotic reptiles at all? Then maybe the Eastside Flea market is more your thing. It is a modern-day flea market which you can visit every weekend. More than 50 local vendors are selling different goods, from handmade craft items to vintage clothing, antiques, plants and more. Food trucks will satisfy your hunger, deejays will play and pinball machines or a pool table can be used for your entertainment. Sounds good? It’s located in the Ellis Building at 1024 Main Street, Vancouver and you can go on Saturday and Sunday from 11am until 5pm. The entry fee is $3 for a single day or $5 if you want to go on both days.

Or how about doing something active in sunny Vancouver? A day without rain is perfect for renting a bike and discovering the city or the park on two wheels. You can rent a bike for example at Spokes Bicycle Rentals, which is located at the entrance of Stanley Park. When you have rented a bike, you can cruise around the Stanley Park Seawall for 1-2 hours, take wonderful Instagram-worthy pictures and tank yourself up with some vitamin D.

No matter what you decide to do, I hope you all have a great weekend!
