Let’s Celebrate Labour Day 2018 at Vancouver’s Most Happening Events!

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Well, we all know that the summer months bring about warmer and drier weather, but that also means different kinds of fun events and activities all around! Summer partying is pretty much the norm when you have such fine weather and with 2018’s Labour Day just around the corner, you can definitely expect that weekend to bring about some of the hottest events of the year.


Our Vancouver car service is definitely all up for celebrating and honoring the Canadian workforce and their contributions to the country, so we’ve listed down the top activities and events to look forward to in your area:


Richmond World Festival

This long Labour Day weekend is a great time to head to Minoru Park for the Richmond World Festival. Here, you’ll get to enjoy plenty of live music, great food (of course!), as well as experience different types of cultures from all over the world. Every age is welcome here, and if you’re a fan of Lights and Magic, you’ll best mark this event down in your calendar.

Nikkei Matsuri

What’s a summer bash without visiting Nikkei Matsuri, one of the best Japanese festivals in Vancouver? There will be tons of free activities taking place both outdoors and indoors, and you’ll also get to enjoy a Game Zone, the Matsuri Marketplace, and many other types of performances. If you’re into Japanese food (especially the fried and grilled variety), this is the place to fill your tummy!

It’s definitely the best fair deal in the whole of Canada, and with activities such as Kidz Discovery Farm, the SuperDogs, tons of carnival rides and music concerts, you can tell it’s something worth attending.

Bands on the Beach

This is exactly what you think it means: bands on the beach, specifically at Harrison Hot Springs. It’s an annual event that brings live music to enthusiasts and fans all around, so you’re welcome to bring your own chair or seating arrangement and get comfy. Of course, you’re going to be at the beach, so if you arrive any earlier, you can always consider going in for a dip first.

If you’re looking to join in on the festivities this year, it’ll be a good idea to leave your car parked and let the experts handle the headache of driving and parking for you instead. Our Vancouver car service chauffeurs are some of the best drivers on the road, so you can definitely sit back and relax. We look forward to hearing from you, so come and join us for the ultimate ride!
