The Vancouver Pride Society’s Unicorn Ball is back for a third year of glorious sparkling realness. Among all the glitz and glam of this fabulous fundraiser is the Love Bus, a hot-pink LED-lit repurposed school bus patronized by tens of thousands of plastic balls. Celebrate Pride, experience the bus/ball-pit hybrid and be sure to mind the very strict dress code of all things unicorn. (Don’t forget: bedazzled is the new black.) With burlesque performances, drag royalty and unicorn-themed eats (god bless the inventor of edible sparkles), this party is one you’ll not soon forget—in part due to glitter’s uncanny ability to stick around for months after you thought you were rid of it.
