With a soggy forecast for the next few days, indoor events are all the rage! Luckily, the very popular YVR Take-Off Fridays event is back for the 7th annual summer celebration starting tomorrow, July 8, 2016.

Recently voted the best airport in all of North America, you don’t need any other excuse to spend an afternoon at the airport! Each Friday, from July 8 to August 26, the terminal will be transformed to a family-friendly fun zone with music, entertainment, and lots of free activities.

If you’re already in the airport on Friday afternoon, you’re sure to be surprised at all the extra entertainment being offered at YVR. If you’re not planning a trip anywhere, you can still get to the airport easily with the help of the Canada Line (a fun trip in itself!)

From 9:00am to 3:00pm, YVR Take-Off Fridays will offer up treats and lunch specials from food locations around the airport, as well as FREE entertainment including live musicians, DJs, caricaturists, face painters, and a cool paper airplane folding zone.

Aside from the excellent entertainment, tours will be available for interested parties who want to learn more about the art and architecture that can be found throughout the airport.

Take a walk around to discover more from The Vancouver Aquarium Aquabus, the Vancouver Canadians, Canucks Autism Network, and the Coca-Cola Hug Me Machine providing on-site activities on select days. In August, the popular Emergency Response Airside Demonstrations will be returning to the Public Observation Area from 11:00 am – 11:30 am.

All that activity will be sure to work up an appetite, and you’ll be able to satisfy your craving with some samplings from special food carts at the terminal. Try a Japadog or a gooey melted cheese sandwich, or enjoy an artisan popsicle for a sweet treat.

Calling all princesses: as part of the festivities, on Friday, July 22 from 1:00pm – 3:30, the red carpet will be rolled out for regal wannabes to participate in a special Princess Tea Party at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport. A trio of princesses will be hosting a tea party to distribute fairy dust for wishes, lead sing-a-longs, and pose for photos with guests. Tickets will likely sell out, so book soon by calling 604-248-3281.
