It may be Monday, but the fun doesn’t have to stop. Here are five things to do in Vancouver today, Monday, July 4.

The Laugh Gallery

  • What: Vancouver comedian Graham Clark (of CBC’s The Debaters fame) hosts one of the longest-running shows in town at The Havana Theatre. How long-running? BeforeThe Hangover, Zach Galifianakis did weekly sets here. Aside from big names and legendary Vancouver acts like Charlie Demers, the best part of the show may very well be the oddball audience prizes that Clark himself finds at flea markets and garage sales around the city.
  • Price: $5
  • Time: Mondays at 9 pm
  • Address: 1212 Commercial Drive

View some strange collections at the Museum of Vancouver

  • What: Corsets, vintage prosthetic limbs, pinball machines – these are just a few of the wacky collections curated by Vancouverites on display at the Museum of Vancouver. All of the collections have an interactive component.
  • Where: Museum of Vancouver – 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver
  • When: On display from June 23, 2016 to January 8, 2017

Free yoga at Dude Chilling Park

  • What: Get out your yoga mats and put away your wallets, free yoga is back for another year! Two sessions, twice a day, seven days a week. All abilities welcome.
  • Where: Dude Chilling Park – 2390 Brunswick Street, Vancouver
  • When: Now until fall; from 10 to 11:15 am and 6 to 7:15 pm

Granville Island

  • What: One of the biggest attractions in Vancouver, Granville Island is a great place to go for free. Enjoy the hustle, bustle and bounty of the Public Market and marvel at the island’s unique arts and crafts, while enjoying the spectacle of street buskers.
  • When: Granville Island Public Market is open seven days a week, from 9 am to 7 pm, most other retail stores are open seven days a week, from 10 am to 7 pm

JAWS at The Rio

  • What: Steven Spielberg’s original summer blockbuster, JAWS, has been terrorizing ocean lovers for over 40 years! Based on Peter Benchley’s novel of the same name, Spielberg’s JAWS forever changed the cinematic landscape, setting a whole new bar for mainstream horror. Masterfully directed with artful yet thrilling cinematography and a truly iconic score, JAWS retains its rightful place in movie history as a true classic four decades after its release. Best enjoyed on the big screen (if you dare!).
  • Where: The Rio Theatre – 1660 East Broadway, Vancouver
  • When: Monday, July 4; 9 pm
