This Friday No More Strangers, BeatRoute Magazine and will be hosting a boat cruise party around Vancouver on the Abitibi and they have kindly invited a reader to join them.

This isn’t your regular dinner and dancing boat cruise however, it has a jam-packed lineup of local dance acts as well as live performances from Humans and SuperCassette.

Local DJ’s My!Gay!Husband! and Erik Devereux/Genie, Hunk the Drunk and Christian Flores will be making sure the party is lively and entertaining. There will also be an afterparty at the Cobalt.

For additional information about the event, you may join the No More Strangers or BeatRoute Facebook groups or follow @winnie_cooper on Twitter.

Leave a comment on this post to enter to win admission (for you and a friend) to the boat cruise party. I’d love to hear about how your summer is going so far or why you would like to party it up offshore in Vancouver.

Since the event is only two days away, I’ll run this contest until 8:00pm today. This is open to those 19 years of age or older.

Update I have a bit more time to find a winner so I’ll do the draw at 9:00am tomorrow, August 26th.

    Summer’s been AMAZING here in Vancouver for me! Just finished being the social media socialite for the Vancouver Queer Film Festival and saw Lady Gaga on Monday! To top it off, I would LOVE to party it up on a boat!

  3. trent noble says:

    hey miss 604! this would be perfect for me and my girl, as the nice cool ocean breeze would be the ideal conditions for our wreck beach sunburns.

  4. Mae says:

    Sounds like fun! would love to check out the local bands Humans & Supercassette

  5. Donna says:

    Pardon the rhyming, but: Summer’s been a bummer, my mom’s fighting cancer and it’s effing terrible. I could really use something like this!

  6. Kristina says:

    Would love to check this out! Hubby and I are desperately in need of a date night – and a night away from the baby!

  7. Sabrina says:

    This summer in Vancouver has been the best so far. Good food, good music, good dancing, good people. It would be absolutely fantastic to end the summer on a great note by being on a boat with two of my favorite local bands – my good friend Peter and Robbie from Humans and very talented melange of boys in Supercassette.

    One of the Humans songs is title: “who knew all we had to do is party”, I’ve tried to live my summer by that motto. Would be a privilege to attend.

  8. Lyndsey says:

    Summer is going great, except I haven’t been on a boat in the this beautiful weather yet!!! Would love to win this!
    Spending time with some friends on the beach, and playing a little softball has been lovely =)
    I also just returned from visiting family and friends on the other side of the country, have gone to some concerts, and now planning on heading to the Squamish Music Festival and then over to a Chef’s Conference in Duncan.
    Busy, but being from the Maritimes, miss being on the water. Would love to take a friend out to enjoy this!

  9. Phyllis says:

    Summer is going great, I passed my CPA final exam and want to celebrate!

  10. Shawn R. says:

    So far my summer is going great but would love to get away from the mainland and out to shore. Havent gone on a cruise for a while now. My buddy and I would love to check this out as we local DJ fans. This will be a great event.

  11. Katie says:

    Summer has been busy. I think it would be great to cap off the end of the summer with a lovely boat cruise!

  12. This summer I went on a 2.5 week canoe trip that took 300 miles to travel, in a cedar log dugout canoe! It was a wild and fun trip. We start in Vancouver, and went to Neah Bah, Washington. Soon I will be ending my summer in Hawai’i by presenting at a conference on “Youth Lead Leadership. Super great year. Going on a boat cruise around Vancouver will just top it off.

  13. Sanaz says:

    It’s been a great summer, filled with bike rides along the seawall, chilling at the beach, hiking, BBQ Parties and a boat cruise would just top it of with a cherry:)

  17. raincoaster says:

    I love boats! I always wanted to be a pirate!

  18. Duncan says:

    Summer has gone by way too quickly. The highlight was having some relatives out from Alberta – it gave us an excuse to be a tourist in our own town and hit the beaches!

  19. Pwall says:

    My summer sucked until I started following Winnie Cooper on twitter. After that moment everything changed. I grew 3 inches, I got promoted at work and my sexy spanish teacher blew me in the hallway. Then I won a game of monopoly and the money turned real afterwards. Also now everytime I see someone get smirnoff iced they die afterwards and their friends get arrested.
    Thanks Winnie! You really turned my life around.

  20. Chad says:

    Hi Rebecca. Just got back from 8 months in Europe. Showing my Irish girlfriend the wonders of Vancouver in the summer. Dropped by the site to see what’s happening in town. Would love to show her a good ol’ Vancouver boat cruise party.
