It’s the end of daylight savings, pumpkin carving, and crisp sunny walks to take photos of colourful foliage. We head now into a festive season of celebration and giving, as November brings us craft fairs, live theatre, talks, the ballet, farmers markets, and film festivals.

    The Vancouver Cyclists Unite for the 99% Ride on Sunday, November 3rd will be a ton of fun. These guys are doing an epic bike ride from Alaska all the way down to South America. Over 17,000 miles. They have invited all Vancouver cyclists to join them this Sunday to bike through our city!!

    You forgot to mention the Annual Health Show this weekend at the Vancouver Convention Center, lots of tips to stay healthy, get in shape and find healthy gift ideas for the holiday season!

  3. Thank you for doing this series of posts, B. A friend asked me what was happening this weekend, and I thought of your regular events’ posts.

    Join Red Fox Healthy Living Society and Britannia Community Services Society on National Sports Day, November 30, from 12PM to 4PM at Britannia Community Centre. Parents can show their children how they had fun before the internet and electronic games. They can introduce them to the thrill of stilt-walking, jumping on a pogo stick, juggling, hula hooping, skipping and tug o’ war.
