Free Ice Cream Sandwhiches on Saturday June 3 for the Grand Opening of 720 Sweets Kingsway Vancouver

 

Another sweet treat offer for free is happening this weekend.  This time it’s ice cream sandwiches.  And with sunny weather in the forecast, the timing is perfect!

On Saturday, June 3, 720 Sweets Kingsway will be offering free sandwiches for the grand opening of this new store location.  Beginning at 3pm, they will be giving away the ice cream sandwiches for the first 100 customers that show them that they have either done one of the following:

  1. Followed them on Instagram (@720sweets) and made an Instagram post about our ice cream sandwiches/grand opening
  2. OR have “Liked” them on Facebook and have checked-in to our store

I’d say that’s a pretty easy way to get a tasty treat on a nice spring day!

2016nightmarketvan

When the warmer weather comes, it brings lots of free and affordable fun to Metro Vancouver.  A favourite activity of the locals, are night markets.  Night markets are a once-in-a-lifetime experience!  A big draw to the night markets is the affordability to enjoy a night of delicious food (seriously, mouth-watering), great deals on merchandise and great entertainment, all in one place.  But that’s not all you’ll find at the night markets, some of them offer kids games and rides, beer gardens (19+),  organic foods including produce and meat, psychic readings, and so much more! 

If you haven’t been before, be prepared with cash, good shoes (because you’ll want to spend all night there), and an empty stomach.  Each and every market differs from the next, so make sure to check them all out this summer!
