This time we only had a short week, because of Family Day. Even more reason to get outside, as you probably did not get that tired from this week. You don’t want to go back to your country and say that you haven’t seen everything, right?
For some of us the weekend already starts early, because we are going to Kelowna today! Kelowna is a beautiful city in British Columbia where you can do a lot of activities like hiking, skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing. However, you can also do other things if you don’t feel like being active on our mini vacation. There are several food and wine tours in Kelowna and there are a lot of opportunities for shopping.
Even though you are not joining our trip, it does not mean that you should stay at home. Vancouver is a very lively city and there is lots to do here as well. One of the great activities held in Vancouver is Winterruption. This event is a winter arts festival that takes place on Granville Island. It already starts on Friday and will take place till the end of the weekend. During this event you can watch a lot of great performances on dance, music, film, arts and crafts. As it is on Granville Island, which is known for its public market, you also have enough choice regarding food.
There are several sports games during this weekend. On Saturday, the Vancouver Giants are playing against Red Deer at 7 pm at the Langley Events Centre. The Canucks are also playing this weekend on Sunday. They will play at Rogers Arena at 7 pm. When you are in Canada, you should definitely go to one of these games!
Are you more into movies? Vancouver got that covered too! For only $2.99 you can watch MVP: Most Valuable Primate at some Cineplex theatres. The movie already starts at 11 am, so you probably should set up the alarm. However, going to the movie for such a cheap price is normally not possible in Vancouver, so it is definitely worth the try.
Enjoy your weekend and see you today or next Wednesday on PuB NiGHT!
