It’s gearing up to be not just one of the busiest weekends of the summer, but one of the busiest of the year.
400 thousand people are expected to take in the Celebration of Light fireworks at night, and roughly 650 thousand are estimated to come to tomorrow’s Pride parade.
That doesn’t even factor in the Taylor Swift concert which goes later tonight and a number of street festivals taking place.
Compounding matters is the weekend temperatures, with daytime highs of 26 degrees expected.
Vancouver Police will have an increased presence, BC Ambulance Service will also be on scene, while TransLink is expected to provide extended service to accommodate the increased demand.
