Will we be getting some snow in our neighbourhood this weekend? Probably not, though the local mountains might. While we wait for a nice dose of snowman-making material, here are a few things to do in Kitsilano this weekend.
3 Things to Do in Kits this Weekend
1. Go Indoor Ice Skating
With the kids, with your new date, or with friends, skating is fun for all ages. The ice rink at the Kitsilano Community Centre is now open for the season. Admission fees are about $6 for adults, with discounted rates for kids and seniors. Skate rentals are available for $3. Don’t forget to bring a helmet (for the little ones) and a thermos filled with hot cocoa for afterwards.
2. Search for Gifts
If you plan on sending any Christmas gifts to friends and family that live overseas, then you better get your package ready to send as the Canada Post deadline is December 1st for regular airmail parcels. Don’t have anything to wrap yet? Kitsilano is the perfect place for gift shopping. Check out Hip Baby for baby & kids toys, Stepback for vintage items, Wanderlust for travel-related goods, and Pulpfiction Books for new, used, and unusual books.
3. Attend a Book Swap
Bring some gently used books to the Museum of Vancouver and swap them for some new used books. Plus get $5 off the admission fee for the museum (kids are free). From 12pm-4pm, this Sunday only. While at the museum, have a look at the interesting Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15 exhibit, on until December 13th.
