This year, our Boffo team is excited to celebrate the holiday season and enjoy all the festive events the Lower Mainland has to offer – especially since last year many of these events weren’t possible. We thought it’d be fun to highlight some that are team are most looking forward to, in no particular order…
Bright Nights at Stanley Park – arguably the most iconic of all holiday events in the lower mainland. The train is back at Stanley Park this holiday season! Stop by and enjoy a train ride through the magically lit urban forest that is Stanley Park. It’s guaranteed fun for all ages.
The Festival of Lights at Van Dusen Gardens – with more than one million lights decorating the 15 acres of the Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, this incredible event is one you won’t want to miss. You can streoll lakeside or wander through the Rose Gardens and finish off your fun with tasty treats paired with holiday music. This event is central for everyone, right in the heart of East Vancouver – steps from our Main Street Eastpark community.
The Peak of Christmas at Grouse Mountain – a big favourite (especially as it’s so close to our Edgemont Walk townhome community). Explore Santa’s Workshop or have breakfast with Santa at Grouse Mountain. With outdoor skating and an enchanting light walk, this is fun for the whole family.
And most importantly, as we’re so thankful to gather with friends and family this year, we also must not forget those who may need a bit of extra support around this time. Our Boffo team is proud to continue our favourite of all holiday traditions – supporting the amazing work The Kettle Society continues to do, especially at this time of year. The Kettle provides a holiday meal to those who need it most – a special celebration full of warmth and good food. And continues to be an open and welcoming space, even on Christmas and New Years Day.
So this holiday season, no matter how you celebrate, where or with who, please also remember those who may need just a bit more kindness and thoughtfulness at this time of year.
