1. New Year’s Eve Guide
Okay, New Year’s Eve isn’t until Tuesday but we wanted to make sure you saw our suggestions for ways to celebrate the end of 2018. Enjoy and here’s to a magical 2019!
2. Canyon Lights
Capilano Suspension Bridge Park’s popular holiday event, Canyon Lights is back. Park guests will be dazzled by the thousands of lights glittering throughout the rainforest, across the Suspension Bridge and on the cliffwalk. Take part in a children’s scavenger hunt, gingerbread cookie decorating, and more!
3. Bright Night Train
Until January 5, the Bright Nights Train and Plaza at Stanley Park sparkles with three million twinkling lights, decorating the darkness that comes early at this time of year.
4. Robson Square Outdoor Skating Rink
The Robson Square Ice Rink is located in the very heart of downtown next to the Vancouver Art Gallery and Robson Street shopping. As it is covered by a clear dome there is protection from rain but is otherwise outside, letting you feel the breeze on you face, letting you feel the energy of the city around you.
5. Heritage Christmas
Ready for a vintage holiday celebration? Stroll through the streets of the Village to see wreaths, cedar swags and vintage-themed displays will. At the bandstand, visitors can create their own magical holiday show with lights that change colours to sound. And best of all, admission is FREE!
6. Charlie Brown Double Bill
Oh good grief, it’s a double bill Charlie Brown: A Charlie Brown Christmas AND You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. Due to the incredible success of the show, performances have been extended to January 6th!
7. Christmas Lights Display Guide
The Christmas holidays may have ended but Christmas lights usually stay up until the kids return to school in January (or at least until December 31st). You have a few more days to enjoy the colourful lights!
8. Holiday Skates
