Family Day is a relatively new holiday for Canadians, originally proposed in the 1990s it wasn't until 2013 that British Columbians celebrated their first official Family Day. The holiday was created to give everyone time off to spend with their loved ones between the large break in statutory holidays of New Years and Easter.

Katy Perry is soaring to new heights…literally. The singer has been enjoying some time-off of her Prismatic World tour, which picks back up in September, and decided to spread her wings and fly…with the help of a zip line. Katy posted several videos on her Instagram of her latest adventure, the first being a slow-motion clip of her gliding through the forest, as R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” fittingly plays in the video.
Summer can get HOT, we can experience temperatures in the high 30s during peak season so sun protection is very important. Make sure you apply sunscreen before your tour. You'll be wearing a helmet so you don't need a hat but you can bring sunglasses. If you plan on wearing sunglasses make sure they fit securely on your face by doing a gentle head shake test - if they fall off during this they'll likely fall off while ziplining, if they stay on then you are good to go! However, if you are taking on the Sasquatch Zipline, you'll want to make sure you have a strap for those sunnies as the speeds are much higher than on our other ziplines.
