SeawallWake up, grab a coffee, slip on some sandals and head towards the water. Awake even before the hum of floatplanes fill Coal Harbour, but in time to catch the rising sun. A lap of the Seawall complete before breakfast, thousands of keystrokes on the laptop by lunch. A trip to the market, fresh greens, catch of the day. Dinner prep, pop a bottle of Howe Sound brew. Free outdoor movies, dancing, or fireworks. So many choices. From the balcony or the beach, watching the mountains turn purple as the sun ducks down to the sea.

That’s a summer day for me in Vancouver, what will yours include? For ideas, check out this month’s list of August Events in Metro Vancouver that have been submitted:

    The link for Boca Del Lupo – Fall Away Home is incorrect

  2. @Jenny At the time of publishing this was the correct link for Boca del Lupo and it was also the link they publicized on Twitter. It appears that they have re-done their website (and per a tweet from them on July 30th they were having website issues) so I have just linked their main page now.

    Hello Rebecca, perhaps the Vancouver LatinoAmerican Film Festival 2013 is an event that your readership might interested in.It starts August 30th until September 8th. Details: http://www.vlaff.org/article/complete-line-has-been-announced-vlaff-2013

    Another event that might be of interest is the Mexico Fest.From September 5th to September 15, featuring Baja California Sur.

    Hopefully you can make it for the events and enjoy the ” Fiesta Mexico Independence” on September 7th at the Vancouver Convention Centre . http://mexicofest.ca/vancouver/
    also the First COPA MEXICO Soccer Tournament that starts on August 31st See: http://www.copamexicovan.com/
