Hey well, would you look at that. Another week has come and gone in Vancouver, and we’re gearing up for some activities this weekend. Sadly, we’ve got a little rain in the forecast, but we’re not going to let it dampen our mood. That’s why umbrellas were made, after all.

Here are 10 things to do in Vancouver this weekend.

Treat yourself to some flowers

Flowers are a surefire way to brighten up any day. And, you can now once more grab some fresh flowers (among other things) at Vancouver’s farmers markets! Earlier this week, the province eased up on their ‘no artisan’ rule, which had prevented them from selling for weeks.

Go on a neighbourhood food tour

Well, sorta. To help ring in the spring, we’re highlighting some of our favourite places to eat at all around Vancouver. Our first stop? Kitsilano, where you can find everything from dim sum and craft beer to upscale Pacific Northwest cuisine.

Take your pup for a walk

We’re sure your dog (or your friend’s dog) is just as excited about the spring as you are. Make the most of it, and check out some of the best dog parks around the city. Need a little help? Lucky for you, the City of Vancouver has a full interactive map you can check out.

Watch a Drive-In Movie

All week long, the Twilight Drive-In will be showing movies for spring break in the city. The lineup has everything from Stuart Little to 21 Jump Street, so we’re sure you’ll be able to find something you like.

When: Showtimes throughout the week
Where: 260th Street & Fraser Highway, Langley
Cost: $30 and up

Or a new, yet old hockey series

Whatever doubts we had about the new Disney+ series The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers were put to bed this week. We spoke with the BC-born Dylan Playfair, son of Jim Playfair (a former NHLer) about playing Coach T, who now leads the ultra-competitive Ducks team. Turns out, old and new fans alike have big things to look forward to.

Where: Premieres on Disney+ Friday, March 26th

Go on a spring date

Do you feel the romance in the air? No? Well, maybe you’re not in the right places. From outdoor activities to great arts and culture options, we’ve rounded up some of the best spring date ideas around the city.

Or an early spring hike

Feeling a little more adventurous? As long as you’re safe about it, you can check out some of the area’s most impressive spring and year-round hikes. If you need some inspiration, we’ve got a list of some of our favourites that you can check out.

Look at some shipwrecks

We almost never give a shoutout to the Vancouver Maritime Museum, so we think it’s overdue. Their latest exhibition is a collection of photographs from Stefano Benazzo, who has spent decades taking pictures of shipwrecks from all over the world. Sure, it’s niche, but we like it!

When: Open throughout the week
Where: 1905 Ogden Avenue
Cost: $13.50

Buy some zines online

The Unibrow Arts Fest returns this week! You can check out a great selection of zines from local artists, or sign up for some free artist talks and workshops. And, with zine prices starting around $3, this is a great way to get into art without dropping a ton of cash.

Seek out some beautiful cherry blossoms

We have a feeling that checking out cherry blossoms will be a top choice for us this spring, and we’re down for it. After all, cherry blossoms are beautiful, free, and a great opportunity for some fresh air. Now, the issue is picking where to go, but we’ve got you covered with the city’s best areas.
