“Temperatures reach up to 33 degrees Celsius in Metro Vancouver this weekend” Summer has arrived in Vancouver and Mother Nature doesn’t shy away from it. It might be boiling all day, but hey, at least it’s not raining or snowing. So, let’s embrace the weather and enjoy it while it lasts.
As you know (and if you don’t, you’re welcome) the Honda Celebration of Light is happening this weekend! This is a three-day competition with its focus on… lights. Every year, three countries display fireworks based on a specific theme. This year’s theme is ‘Love’. Whilst showing the public the fireworks they created, judges from the Metro Vancouver area will be there to rate every performance. Moreover, the audience can vote by downloading the Honda Celebration of Light mobile app. The festival kicks off with South Africa’s performance this Saturday, July 28th. The fireworks start at 10pm and can be admired from English Bay.
Since the fireworks don’t start until 10pm, you might want to do something else before that. I have a great idea for you! Columbia StrEAT Food Fest, the largest one-day food truck fest in Canada, is taking place this Saturday. This event includes hundreds of food trucks, eight beer gardens (yes, eight!) and live music. Sounds fantastic, right? Well, what makes it even more fantastic is that the admission is completely free! You just have to pay for the amazing food and beverages. You can visit this event from 4 until 10pm on Columbia Street in New Westminster.
Sunday, funday! Since the temperatures are rising this weekend, why not spend your Sunday enjoying the sun in the park? One of Port Moody’s Summer Sundays takes place this Sunday. They will provide live music, so if you bring a blanket, some games and snacks, you can have a nice, fun day in the park. The live music starts at 2pm.
Have a great weekend! See you tonight at our Pizza and Sunset event or tomorrow at the Celebration of Light!
