We can’t forget about the ultimate Vancouver classic, the Festival of Lights! The last day is on August 1st so save your spot early and bring tons of snacks….see you at English Bay! Another classic is Movie in the Park, happening every Tuesday in Stanley Part. Check out the website to see the show schedules and to reserve your VIP seats. Every year, the Whistler fine-dining establishment organizes some of the region’s most sophisticated picnics. A very long table–think 250 people seated from end to end–is set with white linens and wine glasses.Then, strangers quickly become friends over an al-fresco meal served family-style. All of this is happening on the Monday August 3rd at 4pm in beautiful Whistler BC.
