I prefer the chilling winter wind, but I should not overlook Vancouver’s beautiful summer season, as well as the events that complement sunshine. Summer might as well just be the best season of the year, it hosts many activities that cater to everyone while giving extra time for students to spend on their interests or with their relations. One might spend the summer with their family, by learning something, or with fellow Vancouverites by attending events during the two short months; while another might just finish Breaking Bad, and compose academic essays during the two long months. In spite of personality chasms, most will find themselves enjoying the two versatile months.

Vancouver is a small, densely populated city, but it keeps a noteworthy collection of recreational facilities, cultural facilities, leisure sites, and a perpetual cycle of cultural events, attaining everything from the city’s diversity and its being the densest city in Canada, thus making the large range of activities possible. The two months are reserved for fun along with personal betterment, focusing only on one aspect… like all fun without work, or vice versa… would deprive one of the Vancouver summer experience, which is quite popular among tourists looking for outdoor activities and special events.

Moving on from the conjectures… I present my favorite Vancouver events:

Canada Day (July 1, All Around Vancouver)
