This Monday, bring the family to the Labour Day Fall Fair at the Burnaby Village Museum. The Fall Fair will feature heritage games and races, a scavenger hunt, croquet, and a corn-shucking contest. The Fall Fair will close out the Burnaby Village Museum’s summer season, and is the last chance to visit the museum before it reopens in November.

If you haven’t been to the Burnaby Village Museum before, the museum is an open-air reconstruction of a 1920s village. The museum combines heritage and replica buildings to recreate the businesses and trades representative of a typical small town along the B.C. Electric Railway. The village includes a general store, blacksmith shop, print shop, farmhouse, barbershop, and a 1912 B.C. Electric Railway interurban tram, housed in a tram barn. The C.W. Parker Carousel, built in Kansas in 1912, still runs today, and is one of the most popular attractions at the museum.

Stanley Park Horse Ride

 

It’s a classic Vancouver traveler’s dilemma: You’ve just got to experience the iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge, 460 feet of knee-quaking adventure. And you’ve just got to see Stanley Park, the 1,000-acre oceanside forest in the heart of the city. And you’ve just got to check out the inspired Emily Carr canvasses inside the Vancouver Art Gallery. And that doesn’t even put a dent in your Vancouver bucket list.

Fortunately, doing it all just got a little easier. Travelers to Vancouver who make a hotel reservation before June 30 (for a stay anytime before the end of the year) get deep discounts on the city’s top attractions.
