Having a laugh at English Bay

Vancouver Biennale wants everyone to laugh and is hosting a Day of Laughter this coming Thursday at Morton Park in English Bay.

The group celebrates art in public spaces and Day of Laughter is being organized to honour Chinese artist Yue Minjun, the man behind one of the city's most iconic public art installations, A-maze-ing Laughter, which is made up of 14 giant smiling bronze men, all featuring Minjun's smiling face.

The free event will include the mayor officially proclaiming the Day of Laughter and a laughing yoga class.

This is Minjun's first trip to Vancouver and his first visit to his sculpture in situ at English Bay.

So 'strike a pose, take a silly photo, tell a joke, and let people know what makes you laugh and why it's important to you. 

Thursday's event starts at 10am at Morton Park. The laughing yoga session at noon.
