Canada Day Events

June 25th, 2018 Posted by blog, Edmonton, Okanagan, Things To Do, Vancouver, Vancouver Island No Comment yet


If you want to celebrate Canada Day in Kelowna, you’ll definitely want to head downtown! Starting at 10:00 am you can listen to music at the Folkfest Stage at Prospera Place, and the activities continue on from there.

Head into Waterfront Park to taste the food from a variety of different vendors while you listen to music at one of the many stages set up in the area. Make sure you stroll along the waterfront to Stuart Park and Kerry Park, where there are more events taking place, including areas just for kids!

Plan ahead to find a good spot to watch the 10:30 pm fireworks, which are launched from the middle of the lake. Admission to the festival site is free, but donations are greatly appreciated to help support the cost of the celebrations.
For a schedule of all of the events taking place, click HERE



Home to Canada’s largest celebration outside of Ottawa, Canada Place is the must-attend Canada Day event in Western Canada. With food trucks, a main stage performance by Jojo Mason, and a citizenship ceremony welcoming 60 new Canadians, you won’t want to miss out on the family fun!
The much anticipated fireworks show starts at 10:30 pm, but make sure you plan your viewing spot! The best locations are Canada Place, Harbour Green Park, Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, Crab Park, and West Vancouver Seawall.
To learn more about the events at Canada Place, click HERE.



Be a part of the largest living flag in the country! They broke a record last year and are hoping to do so again this year! The main stage, which is situated on the Legislature Lawns will have live music all afternoon from a variety of local acts.

Make sure you stick around for the fireworks display in the harbour at 10:20pm. For more information and to view a full schedule of the days events, click HERE.



With events happening all over the city for Canada Day causing road closures, you’ll want to pick your destination ahead of time so you can plan your route.

Start your day with a pancake breakfast at the Alberta Legislature Building. Either stay at the Legislature Building for more Canada Day fun in the afternoon, or visit Mill Woods, The Works Art & Design Festival, Chinatown The Art Gallery, or The Zoo for all of their different activities on Canada’s birthday.  

Edmonton’s fireworks show takes place at 11 pm over Edmonton’s River Valley. Click HERE to learn more about Edmonton’s Canada Day events and to stay up to date with the road closures and alternate routes.

35+ Ideas for Celebrating the Month of Love in BC and Alberta!

February 2nd, 2018 Posted by blog, Edmonton, Okanagan, Vancouver, Vancouver Island No Comment yet

While the tongue in cheek ‘Single’s Awareness Day’ was started in opposition to the Hallmark holiday that is Valentine’s Day, it has evolved into a celebration of love in all forms, recognizing not only romantic love, but also the love between friends and family, and also the love you have for yourself. That is what Valentine’s Day is all about, and at GetintheLoop, we are excited to celebrate everyone on February 14th this year.

Every day should be a celebration of love and positive relationships

It’s true, every day should be a celebration of love. That being said, we could be in hot water if we don’t do a little something special for those we love around this special date. We’ve been hearing that this year many people are planning on avoiding the insanity of February the 14th and are instead celebrating their love in the weeks leading up to, and after, the special day, thus opting out of being elbow-to-elbow to other tables of two in a cramped and busy restaurant.

GetintheLoop has you covered!

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do to celebrate this special time with your loved ones. But now, we’ve got you covered with over 35 offers highlighted below, including experiences, a night out, gifts, and getaways.
