November already comes to an end and the Christmas season finally starts, so of course we’ve also included some Christmas events worth visiting. Therefore just call it a pre-Christmas Special to slowly get into a cozy Christmas mood and next week I will let you know about more ongoing events in December.
This week the Vancouver Christmas Market got back on Queen Elizabeth Plaza. It started on November 21 and will run till December 24. This temporary village will once again boast ‘unique’ food like German ‘Glühwein’, ‘Spätzle’, ‘Bratwurst’, handmade toys and different kinds of treats from over 50 vendors. All the Germans here who miss going to a Christmas Market with their friends the time before Christmas: I’m pretty sure by going to that one here in Vancouver, even though it’s not the same and pretty tiny compared to the ones in Germany, it’ll might let you feel like you would be in Germany. At least a little bit!
Furthermore the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is transformed into a world of festive lights. In that park you are able to see the world’s tallest living Christmas tree (153 feet tall). Besides that they have also some events going on, for instance you can experience the voice-activated light show, you can go on a scavenger hunt throughout the park, you can take photos at the Winter Pavilion and even more stuff. I can easily imagine how gorgeous the canyon must look like with all the lights on!
VanDusen Garden is celebrating the Festival of Lights where you can stroll with friends through the botanical garden. Certainly it’s not just walking through the garden but they also have some specials like for example you can take pictures with Santa, try different holiday treats, enjoy Dancing Lights shows and delight in much more.
You will definitely not get bored at those events!
Since one of our candidates is hosting another (probably legendary) house party on Saturday night I hope no one is having a bad hangover on Sunday so that we are able to go to the Capilano Bridge on Sunday, November 29. If you want to join us we will take the shuttle bus at 2:00 pm at Canada Place, which is additional insert to take the visitors directly to the park.
Wish you all a lovely weekend!
