Let’s not give up on Summer 2018 just yet, there are still lots to do, lots of FREE things to do in and around Vancouver! Take your family to these fun events and you can safely say y’all had a great Summer together, before they go back to school in September.
Who’s ready for the LONG WEEKEND? Here are a couple of tips to remember for your visit: . ☀️Arrive early to beat the lines and claim your favourite picnic area! . ☀️Bring your empty waterbottles or commercially sealed water, and refill for free all day long! . ☀️Grab a hand stamp before leaving so that you can re-enter later on! . ☀️Use the coupon on the back of your admission ticket to use at the Adventure Park any day (open until 10pm for the next 4 weeks!) . . #destinationcultus #cultuslakewaterpark #bcmom #toursimchilliwack #tourismbc #sharechilliwack #sharecultus #cultuslakelife #cultuslakebc #cultuslake #bcblogger #narcity_vancouver #vancouverisawesome
