Looking for holiday events for the whole family?
A great, relatively cheap, activity this holiday season is a Christmas light tour.
Once you finish dinner, pack the kids in the car, put on a CD of Christmas classics and drive through the city on a treasure hunt
Document your adventure with a digital camera.
Have a ballot sheet, where your kids can vote on the most creative, the most absurd, the most classic.
A great starting or ending point is the tree at English Bay. Park the car and take a walk underneath the strings of lights.
If you’re looking for a longer walk, take the family to the Vandusen Garden’s Festival of Lights. The light display will run from December 10th till January 2nd. The lights turn on at 4:30 and shut off at 9. The family rate, for two parents and their children is $29.75.
Time a factor?
Try going for a walk in your own neighbourhood. Check out all the displays and appreciate the effort that went into the many multicoloured mosaics of light.
Just remember to get home at reasonable time.
Wouldn’t want the young one’s to lose any sleep.
