I love how Vancouver does Summer. They really embrace it and utilise their outdoor spaces. I presume it’s coz it doesn’t last long but I don’t want to think about that.
Another cool event, literally right on my doorstep, is the Stanley Park outdoor cinema nights.
Tons of people go (it’s free) with their blankets and picnics. They play cards and chat until the sun goes down and at around 9.30 the movie begins.
I love the sense of community it creates – thousands of people congregating in the park on a weekday to watch an old movie.
You won’t go hungry – there are food trucks and promo give aways for miles. From flavoured corn to burgers and donuts it’s definitely worth having your dinner there. If you don’t mind lines.
I love that everyone claps and whistles at kissing scenes and really gets involved. Best place to people watch!
I’ll be back down there for Dirty Dancing in a few weeks!
