January can seem like a bit of a let-down following the insanity that is December. Keep the fun flowing & make loads of memories with your family…there is lots to do around Metro Vancouver during the 1st month of 2019. If you are looking for more ideas, the Family Fun Vancouver calendar is always being updated so be sure to have a look. Also, each weekend we put together a list of events happening around the city. Our weekend round up gets published on Wednesdays (unless life happens and then it comes out on Thursdays). Have a great January everyone!
