What (Information from 2023): Vancouver's free, family-friendly holiday festival is filled with sugar-plum-flavoured Christmas cheer. Transforming the plazas of Yaletown into a cheery winter wonderland, you'll find toe-tapping live music, a gift market, horse-drawn carriage rides (by-donation) and some super-cool ice-carving demonstrations. Also look out for roaming stilt walkers and photo-friendly costumed characters. Don't forget to drop by the area's Roundhouse Community Centre where historic steam engine 374 will be decked out in twinkling lights.
Where: Helmcken Plaza and Bill Curtis Square, Yaletown, Vancouver
