This year, 16 Business Improvement Associations across the city are teaming up to host a month-long #FindLove initiative through February. Vancouverites can anticipate everything from giant installations to glistening lights, with plenty of opportunities to enter contests and warm their hearts.
Our local neighbourhoods have love to share, and by discovering it this month, you could win up to $5,000 in prizes!
There's going to be massive Instagrammable sweetheart candies located on West 4th, an umbrella installation at Bill Curtis Square in Yaletown and Mount Pleasant, street banner snow globe installations on West Broadway, plus murals, twinkling lights, decals, and plenty of hearts located all around the city for you to uncover and enjoy.
Participating Neighbourhoods include:
Since we're all more familiar with adventuring through the city on walks these days, it's the perfect reason to get out and explore your local area. All you have to do is visit the Instagrammable spots in any of the 15 aforementioned neighbourhoods to celebrate love.
When you do, be sure to snap some photos and tag the individual neighbourhood on social media to enter daily contests, including the hashtags #LoveYourCityContest and #FindLoveYaletown (or another participating neighbourhood).
Each love-themed installation will have a QR code that explains the details of each neighbourhood contest along with directions on how to win the overall grand prize. The winner of this all-encompassing prize will take home gift cards and hotel stays worth up to $5,000.
There has never been a better time to rediscover the spots you know and love in your city (and maybe some new ones, too). Almost every neighbourhood installation will be in place for the month of February, and you'll have the whole month to enter the contest.
So much to love and find in Vancouver's small business neighbourhoods!
We look forward to seeing you and your lovely posts!
