69 free Family Day activities to do this weekend in Vancouver

Comments
Family-Day

There are so many things to do in this city that having a day off to spend time with family should not be taken for granted. Dozens of communities have organized free Family Day activities, including skates, swims, scavenger hunts and more.

In Downtown Vancouver, Robson Square has free skate rentals and the Vancouver Art Gallery is opening its doors for families to connect over creativity. The BC Sports Hall of Fame is also inviting families for their Red Mitten Weekend, where any child wearing red mittens will get in for free.

These events are great opportunities for young families to get out of the house and join in on the fun, without spending a dime.
