Here’s what’s happening in Metro Vancouver this weekend

This weekend is going to be a busy one if you want to get out of the house. From cultural celebrations to pounding the pavement — a ton of events are on the go around Metro Vancouver.

More than 500,000 people are expected to converge in Surrey this weekend, as the city hosts its annual Khalsa Day Vaisakhi Parade.

From music to festivities, the area around Newton will be packed on Saturday. One of the most important festivals in the Sikh calendar, Surrey’s Vaisakhi Parade is the largest in the world.

In Vancouver, the annual 4-20 celebrations are also on the go Saturday.

It’s down at Sunset Beach in the city’s West End, so you may want to make sure you’re upwind if you don’t like the smell of marijuana.

Meanwhile, BC Place is going country this weekend.

Nickelback, Luke Bryan, and Dierks Bentley are headlining the first-ever Coast City Country.

The boys from Hanna, Albt. are on stage Friday night, while the U.S. superstars do their thing Saturday night.

And if you need something healthy after all that celebrating, the Vancouver Sun Run goes on Sunday.

It’s the 40th addition of the 10-kilometre run, one of the largest races of its kind in North America.

Road closures are in place on Sunday for downtown and near Stanley Park, so if you’re thinking of travelling into the city that day, maybe look to take transit.
