Christmas at Canada Place (Dec 1 - 31)

If you're looking for a family friendly Christmas event to go to, look no further! Christmas at Canada Place is a free event, with plenty of activities and attractions. There will be a skating rink (!), holiday train, a trip down memory lane with the historic Woodward's Windows, Christmas trees, a chance to try curling, and much  more!

Christmas at Canada Place is open all weekends, but closed Christmas day. Click here for the schedule and to find out more details.

Free Skating at Robson Square

What better way to get into the holiday spirit than some skating in an outdoor rink? Robson Square is opening their ice rink once again, and is free if you bring your own skates! Skate rentals will be available for $4 and a concession stand will also be on site. Check their website for skating times.

Vancouver Festival of Trees 2013

The Festival of Trees is happening again in Vancouver from now until the new year. Take a moment from your Christmas shopping and pop into the hallways of the Four Seasons Hotel in Downtown Vancouver and the upper level of Pacific Centre Mall to take a look at some very creative trees! Visitors can vote for their favourite tree, with a voting prize of a trip for two with WestJet Airlines!

More details about the Vancouver Festival of Trees can be found here.

Gingerbread Lane 2013 at the Hyatt Hotel (Nov 28 - Dec 27)

Gingerbread Lane is back at the Hyatt Hotel in Downtown Vancouver. There are tons of amazing gingerbread creations, from professional pastry chefs to students from secondary schools. You can vote for your favourite display between November 28 to December 27th. I went to take a look last year, and it was surprising how extravagent and detailed some of the gingerbread creations were. I highly recommend taking a stroll through Gingerbread Lane!

 Details about Gingerbread Lane can be found here.
