Congratulations on almost making it through another work week, Vancouver. It’s not easy but you did it. That means it's time to start planning your weekend shenanigans. In typical Vancouver fashion, there are some amazing things going on this weekend. From food-centred activities to events that will allow you to dance the night away, it’s all happening this in just a few days. You’ll seriously have one busy schedule once you see all the things to do in Vancouver this weekend.
Now is the perfect time to start planning what you and the crew want to get up to during your well deserved days off.
Starting Friday, there will be several wicked events going on around the city and they all seem like a blast.
While you could browse the internet trying to find the best events, we already did it for you.
We know, the weather out there is less than desirable but that shouldn’t get in your way of having a good time.
Bundle up, face the cold, and have a rad two days off. It won't last long so make the most of it while you can.
Monday will come sooner than you think. Have the best weekend ever!
