Metro Vancouver Weekend Event Guide February 26 - 28There’s snow in the forecast (yes, I’m excited about that!), the Lunar New Year celebrations continue, a few Vancouver must-do events are coming to a seasonal close, the Olympics wrap up this weekend (and I’ve very sad about that) and this is the last weekend of February. Wow! It’s been a busy and quick month. Check out our suggestions for February 24 – 26. Enjoy!

1. Lunar Fest
LunarFest returns to the newly renovated Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza. From meeting a giant husky to chasing the moon in “Moon Crawl”, you and your family are about to experience the most memorable Year of the Dog ever! Admission is FREE for all friends – whether two-legged or four!

2. Robson Square Ice Skating
The Robson Square Ice Rink is located in the very heart of downtown next to the Vancouver Art Gallery and Robson Street shopping. As it is covered by a clear dome there is protection from rain but is otherwise outside, letting you feel the breeze on you face, letting you feel the energy of the city around you. This is THE LAST weekend to enjoy the Robson Square Ice Rink as it closes at the end of February and won’t return until November.

3. BC Home & Garden Show
The BC Home & Garden Show is as popular as ever! 2018 marks the 47th anniversary of the event. While we may feel stuck in the winter doldrums, the BC Home & Garden Show is a clear sign that Spring is on its way.

4. Family Nights in Cloverdale
The City of Surrey is hosting a series of FREE family nights in Cloverdale on Fridays through February and March. This Friday family craft night happens at Clayton Hall. Enjoy winter crafts & hot cocoa.

5. Michaels Kids Club
For either $2 or $5 your child can enjoy some crafting fun while you browse the aisles at Michaels. This weekend the kids will be making birds & butterflies crafts.

6. Cineplex Family Favourites
A family movie for just $2.99 per person? You bet! Head to your local Cineplex Theatre on Saturday at 11am. Every Saturday there is a new movie showing. The flick you can enjoy this weekend is: Wonder.

7. Soar Over China at FlyOver Canada
FlyOver Canada is proud to present “Flight of the Dragon”for the 4th year.  For a limited time, guests will get to experience Flight of the Dragon and FlyOver Canada back-to-back for the regular FlyOver admission price! This event was extended until February 25th due to it’s popularity.

8. Vancouver Pet Lover Show
