Valentine’s Day is coming in hot this year (tomorrow) and we are here to help you make Valentine’s day special on a budget. We’ve put together a list of affordable and unique outings that will make this Valentine’s day a rememberable experience for you and your loved one!
1. Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival
We all know that Valentine’s day and a box of chocolate pretty much go hand in hand. But if your willing to think outside of the box this year, take your loved one to Vancouver’s Hot Chocolate Festival. Create a new memory by experiencing 60+ new and different chocolate flavours. Don’t worry, there are vegan, non-dairy, organic and yes, alcoholic options there too. Also, Valentine’s Day is the official closing day of the festival so make sure you check this hot festival out!
2. Vancouver Chinese New Year
This year, Chinese New Year falls on the same weekend as Valentine’s Day, which means you can celebrate both in one go! If you’re on a budget and willing to ring in another new year then check out these free Vancouver Chinese New Year events: the Vancouver Chinese New Year Parade, LunarFest, and Chinese New Year at the International Village.
