A-maze-ing Laughter Scupltures in English Bay Vancouver

BC Day long weekend is here and it’s suppose to be a weekend full of great sunny weather!  The long weekend is going to bring lots of great free and cheap events all around Metro Vancouver and I’ve got you covered with events from Friday, July 29 to Monday, August 1.  Some of the events included this weekend will be the Powell Street Festival, White Rock Sea Festival, The Harmony Arts Festival and BC Day Celebrations.  It’s best just to go through the list of events, because there’s too many to mention!  Most of the events below are free and the rest are less than $15 per person.   Also, if you’re interested in visiting a farmers market this weekend, there’s at least 10 happening around Metro Vancouver, so visit my post on Metro Vancouver Farmers Markets for more information.  Happy BC Day long weekend!
