What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday again which means that the weekend is just around the corner! If you don’t know yet what you want to do on the weekend then keep on reading because we are going to give you some tips!

Since it is almost December, there are already a lot of Christmas events going on. Like for example you can go to the Capilano Suspension Bridge to see the Canyon Lights.

22799557324_a99330f147_zOn Saturday you can also visit the Surrey Tree Lighting Festival which include family friendly activities, holiday crafts, food trucks, live entertainment and the lightning of a 55-foot Christmas tree. Also the Vancouver Christmas market located at the Jack Pool Plaza started this week. This Christmas market is an European-style market that’s great for holiday window shopping and festive things to eat. There is on most days (especially weekends) also live music.

If you don’t feel like Christmas yet than you can also go to the Disney on Ice show or Cirque du Soleil which are both still in town.

And the INTERNeX family will go to Seattle this weekend to do some sightseeing and of course some Black Friday Shopping!

We hope you all have an amazing weekend and we’re looking forward to see all of you tomorrow for Seattle!

What to do on the weekend?

Not 5 days, but just 4 days and the weekend is already here. That also means one day less to figure out what to do this weekend. No worries, I am here to help you out. On Saturday the Canucks are playing and we are watching. It will be a nice game to see. But also other activities are taking place. Find out below what is going on in and around Vancouver.

Do you already have some Christmas feelings? Good. From this week on the INTERNeX Office Christmas Carol Tour takes place. For just 50 cents, you can watch our Christmas tree while professional karaoke singer Bart will sing you a Christmas carol with reindeer ears on his head and you can enjoy a chocolate as well. What a great deal! If you want something more professional (I can’t imagine) the first Christmas Craft Fairs are taking place this weekend. Go to the Christmas market at Hycroft, the craft market at Chiliwack, the Christmas show at West Coast or the Holiday Bazaar in North Vancouver.

If you want you can do a crawl this weekend. No, not a pub-crawl, but this time a Culture Crawl. In 80 buildings in the area over more than 500 artists will show their work. Is art not your thing? Ok, what about hiring a car and driving to the Fraser Valley for the Bald Eagle Festival? Take your camera with you on 18 or 19 November and spot some of these great eagles. You get the beautiful views for free as well. Enjoy nature walks, boat tours, wildlife and of course hundreds of bald eagles.

I will see you guys who joining the Canucks game on Saturday, and the others perhaps afterwards. Whatever you decide to do this weekend, you have to promise me one thing: have fun!
