Summer’s here, West End! And with it, comes all the best things we love about living in Vancouver: beaches, sunsets, festivals, fireworks, parks, patios, and pride! This summer, the West End BIA wants you to show us your summer in the city.

To enter, snap a pic of yourself and your friends doing what they love anywhere in the West End (the area of downtown Vancouver west of Burrard) and use #WEAmaze and @WestEndBIA in the caption. We’ll review the entries each week on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and our photography editor Nelson Mouellic will select a weekly favourite. Each of these weekly favourites will be placed into a shortlist for a chance to win a brand new city bike courtesy of Denman Bike Shop.
