Surrey Tree Lighting Festival
What: Surrey's sparkling start to the festive season includes a brilliant afternoon of family-friendly fun -- from a holiday market to live music and from ice-carving demos to lots of craft-making shenanigans -- all leading up to the 6:30pm lighting of the city's official Christmas tree (a brightly shimmering 55-foot stunner). But that's not all: the event also includes ziplnes, fairground rides and the chance to meet and have your photo taken with the big man himself.
When: November 25 (noon to 7pm)
Where: City Hall Plaza, 13450 104 Avenue, Surrey
