Congratulations on almost making it through another work week. It hasn't been easy, but we did it. Now it’s time for the real fun -- planning what we are going to do with all our time off. Here are 6 things to in Vancouver this weekend to help you make it a good one. 

We are well into December and that means the festive events are in full swing.

From Christmas-themed extravaganzas to concerts and more, there are some wild things going on in YVR this weekend.

As always, we are here with a list of things you need to do this weekend to make every second count. 

Whether you're up for a solo adventure or a rowdy get together with a group of friends, these events have you covered. 

Mother Nature still hasn’t caught on that we are in the middle of winter, so the weather is prime right now. That means you can get out and explore without freezing. Sorry, Alberta

Without further delay, let's get into it! May the fun officially begin.
