A MINI Guide to Weekend Activities in May


We have a confession to make: at MINI Richmond, we’re a little sun-crazed. Nothing beats sunny days on the west coast—we’ve got the perfect weather and amazing events going on each spring to drive away the winter blues.
Discover our top three activities to check out on a sunny day this month below!



With spring in full bloom, it’s on everyone’s lips right now…the Abbotsford Tulip Festival! The annual trip to Abby is the spring version of a pumpkin patch visit in the fall, only much prettier. It’s the perfect photo spot to bring your photographer friends to, especially when the sun is on your side! The hour-long trip will be worth every minute once you get that money shot.



If you’re looking for something more local to Richmond, now is the perfect time to check out the Kwantlen St. Farmers Market that happens every Tuesday from 12 to 4pm at Minoru Plaza. It’s stuffed full of locally grown produce, live entertainment, and artisanal products for you to check out. The best part? Free parking!



For all the thrill-seekers out there, we can’t forget about hitting up Vancouver’s favourite amusement park, Playland, when it reopens on May 4th! When the weather’s good, the day will be great at Vancouver’s classic entertainment area. It’s definitely a weekend activity as Playland is only open on Saturdays and Sundays this month, and most talents performing at the PNE Amphitheatre/PNE Forum (think NAV, Billie Eilish, Kali Uchis and Jorja Smith, and Armin van Buuren for May).
