Summertime should be synonymous with fun (even if you’ve already taken all your available vacation days), and that means taking advantage of as many seasonal activities as possible. From festivals and night markets, to parades and the PNE, there are ample reasons to experience everything the Lower Mainland has to offer in the summer—even if you’ve got errands to run.Park Royal is an easy choice for an urban day out, and with “back to school” just around the corner, you may need to mingle some summer fun with a bit of fall shopping. Keep stress low by making a day of it, mixing shopping with a great meal, stocking up on essentials from Whole Foods or Loblaws City Market, and of course, a visit to the Summer Treat Team booth at Park Royal South, Friday to Sunday (and holidays), through September 3. Games, prizes and more await visitors of the Summer Treat Team booth every weekend.Each weekend, the Summer Treat Team will be set up in the breezeway of Park Royal South (near the Spindle Whorl fountain) handing out sweet swag* to some lucky visitors. Need more motivation to pay them a visit? In addition to the numerous giveaways*, you can enter for a chance to win a $3,000 Park Royal gift card (see contest rules and regulations here). Plus, local business like RYU, New York Fries and more, will be joining in with games, prizes* and samples just for stopping by the booth. No trip to Park Royal would be complete without some quality time on one of the many patios.In between the sun-drenched strolls along the outdoor paths connecting your favourite shops—we’re willing to travel for Simons alone—and a leisurely lunch on a shady patio (we see you, Cactus Club Cafe), be sure to hit up the Summer Treat Team booth while you’re there.This time of year means trips to your local farmers’ markets, summer day hikes, biking until the sun sets and finally, trying out paddle boarding—all in addition to the beaches and patios calling your name across the Lower Mainland. With so much to do in town, a stay-cation—complete with a day at Park Royal— is a must for every Vancouverite.*All swag/giveaways are limited to one per person, while quantities last.
