Christmas Tree Lighting
What: Back for its 13th year, the seasonal lighting of the city's four official Christmas trees on the south side of the Vancouver Art Gallery––including a shimmering, 76-feet-tall cone of lights and fake foliage that's just crying out for selfies––kicks-off with a family-friendly event sprinkled with free cookies, hot chocolate and toe-tapping live music. Santa and his twinkle-eyed elves will also be on-hand and more than ready to pose for some magical festive photos. And if the cookies and hot chocolate are not enough to fortify you on a chilly November night, there are food trucks here to fill your belly as well. While you're here, consider making a donation to the Vancouver International Children's Festival Society as well.
When: November 29, 2019 (6pm-7pm)
Where: Robson Square, outside the Vancouver Art Gallery, downtown Vancouver
Cost: Free (but donations to the Vancouver International Children's Festival Society are greatly appreciated)
