Events this May

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

Here are some exciting events to look out for this month of May.

BMO VANCOUVER MARATHON
SUNDAY MAY 6th
The Vancouver Marathon has to be one of the stunning courses around. Starting off at the gorgeous Queen Elizabeth Park which has 360 degree views of the city and its mountains, and then winding around the South and West of the City along the UBC Campus grounds through to downtown and around Stanley Park and back to the downtown core again, not only do the participants get to stretch their legs but they also will heighten their senses with the spectacular scenery that this city has to offer!
What is even better this year is that it looks likely the Weather is going to be on our side, with the thermometer quite possibly reaching the low 20s C (Mid to high 60s if you work with Farenheit).
So whether or not you are a participant or a spectator, get out there and enjoy the day and make sure to grab the Sunscreen!

RICHMOND NIGHT MARKET Featuring Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Asian cultural foods and more

After successfully restarting in 2012 after a 4 year hiatus The Richmond Night Market is back!
Many will say that this night market is the one to see if you want to visit a Chinese market – as the summer season shows signs of its return, the night markets are a great place to visit for some excellent Asian food and cheap goods, it is well worth a visit and we are sure you will come back with your hand full and a satisfied belly!

Head down to Granville Island from around May 7th and look out for the fun festivities!

Happy Easter

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Hello everybody, looking outside we feel confident that it is going to be a very pleasant Spring, and all in time for us to celebrate the Easter Season.

So Happy Easter to you all, we will like to put you in the right direction of events and places of worship if you are looking for somewhere to celebrate this very famous occasion on the Christian Calender. If you are just celebrating as you have some days off, we are sure we can find something for all the family to enjoy.

At the Sunset Inn, this time of year marks a major transition from Winter Season to Summer season, and it is now just a matter of weeks before the Cruise Ships start to move in and welcome the tourists from all over the globe, many of whom are getting ready for the big cruise north to Alaska. This means that the hotel and Vancouver will be getting very very busy and the city now has its lively summer hat on, we feel it is is going to be yet another busy and fun packed summer, so please keep up to date with the blog as we will keep you up to date on all that will be going on.

So as this is Easter Week, Vancouver has various events happening all around the city, here are some of the highlights that we feel you will enjoy!
