Hey there Vancouver, are you guys ready for another weekend? We certainly are and we’re honestly still a little confused as to how the month is already almost over. Weren’t we just figuring out what to do for our non-party Halloween plans? Good lord, island time has nothing on COVID time. Regardless, we’re excited to see what’s happening in Vancouver this weekend and think you will be too.

Here are 8 things to do in Vancouver this weekend.

Peak of Christmas

This mountaintop light display returns to Grouse Mountain and is a great double-whammy option. Why? Because admission also grants access to skating at Blue Grouse Lake. Definitely one of the more wintry options for seeing lights, and we’re down for it.
