Professional & Spectator Sports
Spectators at a hockey game (Kevin Arnold photo)
While Vancouverites are famous for their active lifestyles, they also take time to sit up and cheer, as evidenced by crowded sporting venues.
The locals are particularly passionate about the Vancouver Canucks and the BC Lions, the city's respective National Hockey League and Canadian Football League teams. They also are big-time supporters of the Vancouver Canadians (Single-A baseball) and Vancouver Whitecaps (soccer).
Visitors seeking Canadian-style lumberjack competitions should head to the annual Squamish Days Loggers Sports festival. Participants come from all over the world to compete in events like tree topping, axe throwing and tree falling.
