If you thought the Vancouver airport (commonly known as “YVR”) was just a place to catch your flight, eat some Tim Hortons donuts, and buy some duty-free treats, you’d be half right. But this summer, the airport will also be the coolest place to hang out on Friday afternoons for some fun before your flight.

These popular summer celebrations, known as YVR Take-Off Fridays will be held every Friday from July 3rd to August 28th from 9:00am to 3:00pm and will feature treats, music, and spectacular entertainment that will travelers and staycationers alike eager to get to the airport.

A full list of the weekly entertainment highlights is listed on the YVR website, but each Friday will be full of so much fun, that you may as well try to go to all of them!
