What to do this weekend?

Jingle Bells, jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! All I want for Christmas is you. Walking in a winter wonderland. Here you go. Just some suggestions you can sing during the Christmas Karaoke Trolley Tour this tomorrow. Yes, that’s right! Tomorrow is the big day. Wonder what else is happening this weekend? No worries, I got you. Find out in this blog.

24623828_1645556255491479_182680653_oThe doors of the ice-skating rink have been opened. Go to Robson Square to enjoy some ice-skating. It’s free! You can bring your own skates or rent them there. From Wednesday on until Christmas there is a life act performance every day. So even another fun reason to go there.

For the people who are not joining the Christmas Karaoke Trolley, maybe it is fun to go to the places where we make our stop. You can go for example to Stanley Park for the Bright Nights event. Enjoy the many Christmas lights and miniature train rides. We also make a stop at the Festival of Lights at the VanDusen Garden. Thousands of Christmas lights light up the Garden to create a wonderful winter wonderland.

I hope you have much fun with whatever you decide to do and for the people joining the Christmas Karaoke Trolley, warm up your voices, because we are going to rock!
