What to do on the weekend?

It is Friday again and you know what that means, right? Time to get out of the house and celebrate the weekend. This weekend will be a long weekend, so you will have lots of time to explore British Columbia and Vancouver.

18195054_10155240525552103_6049775120854058037_nWe were already really lucky with the weather and it is getting better and better, which is why it is time to do outdoor activities. In this way we can enjoy the sun to the fullest. Therefore is INTERNeX planning a bike ride through Stanley Park on Sunday. You may have already seen the totem poles, but there are so many other things to explore in this amazing park.

There are also several events taking place during this weekend, such as the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair and the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. The Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair is a festival which is 4 days in total. This event is especially for the cowboys and cowgirls in our group. So let your inner cowboy free during this great festival. The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is a festival with several comic-related events. These include readings, presentations, discussions and a big exhibition area. If you like comics, then this is definitely the place to go!

Besides that you can also go to Tagore Spring Festival in Surrey on Saturday. There are various kinds of performances, including dance, music and poetry. Next to that you can also learn a bit more about the Canadian culture while you watch presentations about all the different traditions and heritages. The festival is paid by donation, so definitely worth checking out!

Of course, you could also go to one of the great sports bars in Vancouver. When you would rather spend your time outside because of the expected good weather, then you could go to one of Vancouver’s great beaches such as English Bay, Jericho Beach and Kitsilano Beach.

I hope you will have a great weekend! See you in Stanley Park or at next week’s PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

Yay! Just a few hours left and it will be weekend again! Although it is rainy and cloudy today, it’ s supposed to be quite sunny this weekend so enough outdoors activities to do!

On Saturday morning we will go to Lighthouse Park to start the weekend of with some exercise. The views are amazing from that area so we hope to see you come along! For details please click here.

Because it is supposed to get sunny I would advise you to go outside! Go up to Grouse grousemountainMountain for example. I did this last weekend and the views were absolutely amazing. You are still able to go skiing by the Eagle Express. Besides that the grizzly bears Grinder and Coola who live in a habitat on the mountain, woke up from their hibernation period. They are in full action again and you are able to take a look at them. So it is definitely worth your money to go up the mountain!

From May 6 to May 13 it is Bird Week in Vancouver. This is a weeklong series of events to celebrate the birds of Vancouver. During this week there will be bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions and lectures across Vancouver. You don’t need to be a bird fanatic for this one, also if you just like the outdoors you are welcome to join. Best part is that most of the events are free, so check out their website to see if something suits you.

On Sunday the annual BMO Vancouver Marathon is happening. This is a really big event, which goes all across the city. Because of the marathon on Sunday there is a free Health & Sports Expo in the Vancouver Convention Centre till 6pm on Saturday. When you want to catch all the action at the finish line, you have to go to West Pender Street between Bute and Thurlow Street. There is also a Street Festival located on West Hastings between Bute and Burrard Street. Check out all the events and details on their website 🙂

Have a great and shiny weekend everyone!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday and in a few hours it will be weekend!! Time for another list on what to do this weekend!

The weather forecast for Saturday doesn’t seem that good. After a week of sunshine it will be raining the whole day. So that will be a good opportunity to do some inside activities like going to museums or the movies. Every Saturday morning at 11am at Cineplex theatres they have a Family Favourites Movie for only $2.99. Or go to one of the amazing other movies that are played in the theatres now! If you do want to conquer the rain, there are lots of tulip festivals around Vancouver during the whole day and the Darts Hill Garden Park is open to the public between 11am and 3pm.

16299277_10208652946223153_4290230621236688149_n.jpgOn Sunday it is going to be good again. There is a chance of rain, but not that much, so that will be an amazing day to do some hikes or go to the beaches! If you want to go to the tulip festivals on a sunny day, you can go on Sunday too. If you rather do some sports you can also go and join the MEC Langley Race TWO. It is a run with different lengths to choose from between Pitt Meadows and Fort Langley. It is going to be a good weekend!

Hope to see all of you somewhere this weekend or at the next PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

Almost weekend!! There are lots of events this weekend in Vancouver!

First of all, some of us will go to the Vancouver Riptides to watch their first Frisbee game of the year, so it will be very busy.

There are also some other events this weekend. For example, tomorrow it is Earth Day. To celebrate this day there will be a number of events around town. Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 11.28.57 AM.pngThe two biggest ones are the Party for the Planet in Surrey and the Earth Day Parade in Vancouver. Party for the Planet is a family friendly event at the Surrey City Hall. It features environmental information booths, activities for children and lots of live entertainment. Around the second half of the afternoon there will be live music for older folks. The Earth Day Parade will start at 1 PM at the corner of Commercial Drive and Grandview Highway, after that it will go north and finishes at Grandview Park, where a small festival will take place until 5 PM.

On Sunday the Vancouver Sun Run will take place and starts at 9 AM. This is the largest 10 km race of Canada and also one of the most beautiful. It will start at the corner of Georgia and Burrard and it goes to Stanley Park, English Bay, Burrard Street Bridge, Cambie Bridge and to BC Place Stadium. The views include the mountains, ocean, beaches, skyscrapers and bridges.

I hope to see all of you this weekend!

What to do on the weekend?

Only a few more hours to go and then our weekend starts! If you do not have any plans for the weekend yet and want to do something then check out one of these activities.

15630251392_c899ee6c08_o.jpgINTERNeX was first planning on going for a hike at Lighthouse Park. Unfortunately, it will be rainy tomorrow all day long. Therefore, we decided to go to FlyOver Canada instead. FlyOver Canada is a flight simulation. It will take you high into the sky and show you the beautiful scenery of Canada from above. The whole activity takes about 25 minutes. We will be meeting at the entrance of FlyOver Canada at 3 PM.

In the evening you can get some drinks in a pub while watching the last Canucks game or you can get tickets to see the players in real life. The game will start at 7 PM and will be against Edmonton Oilers. So let’s cheer for our favourite team one last time!

If you are a big Harry Potter fan and love classical music, then check out the Harry Potter Film Concert Series! During the show you will watch Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets supported with music by The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. You will experience the movie in a totally different way.

Till the 28th of April the Capture Photography Festival is taking over Vancouver. The Capture Photography is an annual festival celebrated in and around Vancouver. This festival is used to celebrate and promote photography and lens-based art. During the festival there will be exhibitions, public art and educational activities throughout Vancouver.

Have a great weekend and see you at FlyOver Canada!

Spring Lights Illumination – Experience IT Review

On Saturday night we went to the Queen Elizabeth Park for the Spring Lights Illumination and although that didn’t quite turn out the way we thought it would, we still had a great night with you guys!

IMG_1980Luckily this time there was no snow coming down on us, so we actually got to enjoy the view. We met up at the conservatory where we all got some pretty pictures while it was still light outside. Then we went to the statue where we took our group picture as it was slowly starting to get darker. As we walked back to the conservatory we found more people that belonged to our group and we decided to walk around the park in the dark. Since they decided to cancel the Spring Lights Illumination last minute we could hardly see anything, but we did get a good laugh out of it.

After walking around for a bit we decided it might be a better idea to go to downtown to get a drink. Some of us decided to go home, the rest ended up at The Cambie and had a few drinks together to celebrate the weekend!

I hope to see you all at PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s finally Friday again! Time to do some amazing things in Vancouver this weekend!

17389183_10155108361507103_2218754490592107005_o.jpgThis weekend the INTERNeX family will go The Spring Lights Illumination in the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park. We will enjoy the amazing lights, music, cherry blossoms and the multisensory show in the park. This event is part of a bigger festival called the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival. There are several events in the VanDusen Botanical Garden, 6 walks through some of Vancouvers’ spring gardens and lots more.

Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day and International Pillow Fight Day, which means lots of fun!! Don’t forget to fool your friends and also do not always trust them because you can fall for one of their tricks too. International Pillow Fight Day is also celebrated in Vancouver. There will be a massive 15 minutes pillow fight outside the Vancouver Art Gallery by the corner of Robson Street and Howe at 3 PM. It will be amazing to participate or to just watch this craziness.

17690980_10208612464010029_949684745_n.jpgThis week was also the beginning of the Vancouver International Auto Show and you can still go there this weekend to see dozens of the latest cars on display. The show is from 10 AM until 10 PM at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Sunday is supposed to be really sunny, so go out and explore the highlights of Vancouver as well! It will be the perfect day to do some hikes, sightseeing or visiting the outdoor farmers markets! I hope you all have a great weekend and see you tomorrow at the Queen Elizabeth Park or next week on PuB NiGHT!!
