Vancouver International Airport is the place to be on Fridays this summer, as we are set to launch another fun-filled season of YVR Take-Off Fridays. Every Friday from July 5th to August 30th the airport will feature free, live entertainment in the terminal on top of a host of retail specials, prize opportunities and reduced parking.
This weekly event offers an affordable outing for the entire family and has something for everybody. For the little ones there are face painters, caricaturists, balloon artists located throughout the terminal as well as fun, educational activities up on YVR's Public Observation Area. For adults there are lunch specials, retail offerings and live music to keep you entertained. Groups who arrive earlier and have an hour to spare can also swing by The Spirit of the Haida Gwaii: The Jade Canoe and go on a 10 a.m. tour that highlights all of our art and architecture pre-security at YVR
You can also visit a customer care counter and enter to win a YVR Staycation Package that features 250 YVR Bucks, a night at the luxurious Fairmont Vancouver Airport and a behind-the-scenes tour of Vancouver International Airport. Prize is awarded weekly.
There will also be a special Paper Airplane Workshop and Competition on July 12th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Public Observation Area, Domestic Terminal, Level 4. The event will feature a paper airplane expert teaching folks how to fold the perfect flyer. You can also enter a fun contest that will see how far your aircraft can soar.
So circle every Friday from here until the end August on your calendar, YVR Take-Off Fridays is the summer hot spot.
