Tourism Vancouver is bringing back the LOVE!
The popular outdoor ambient experience, Love Bubbles, is back for the month of June with a new summer look. In partnership with the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel, Westin Bayshore Hotel and Hudson Pacific Properties, the new Love Bubbles will feature activations designed to spread joy and love through dance and music, by highlighting local, talented, and culturally diverse dancers and musicians at various sites around the downtown core.
For the safety and enjoyment of everyone, organizers ask that all attendees to spend 10 minutes maximum at the activation, and as advised by Public Health, wear a mask, stick with your Covid family or friend bubble and maintain physical distancing.
