Can you say February freebie five times fast? It’s a tongue twister you can use on your way to these great family events in Vancouver.
The H.R. Macmillan Space Centre hosts ‘Saturn-5 Saturdays’ on the third Saturday of each month from 12:30–3:30. In case you don’t have your calendar handy, that’s this coming Saturday, February 21. The series is named after the rockets NASA used for the Apollo and Skylab missions. Free with admission, there’s a different family mission to complete each month. This month it’s all about family portraits, a tribute to the 25-year anniversary of when Voyager 1 captured an image of all of the planets in our solar system.
Don’t miss The Dragon of Glory dance performance at the Vancouver Art Gallery during LunarFest February 20-22, performed by an award-winning troupe from Taiwan. Bonus: Your can make a craft before you go! Check out the festival’s website for instructions on how to make your own sheep lantern in honour the Year of the Sheep.
Finish off your freebie outings with skating in Robson Square before it closes for the year on February 28. It’s free if you have your own skates, or $4 if you need to rent skates and a helmet.
Even without snow on our ski hills, February can still be fun. And saving cash with these free family outings helps us feel a whole lot better about our weekends off the slopes.
