Make the most of your time in Vancouver by adding some fun holiday magic to the mix this month! 

Glow Gardens

Running all season from Nov. 21 until Jan. 5, a million lights will light up the Harbour Convention Centre area. These “Glow Gardens” are part of a series of the world’s largest indoor Christmas festivals that are dispersed across 11 cities and three countries. This year, help the elves find Santa's Lost Presents, ride on the trackless train Glen the Glow-comotive, jump on LED swings, wander through Christmas Light Gardens, tell Santa your wishes and more. Enjoy the magic and wonder of a holiday festival, but with the warmth and coziness of the indoors. Buy your Glow Gardens tickets online in advance and get ready to be amazed! 

Timberline Country Christmas

Do you need a break from the bustling city of Vancouver? Take a short trip to the countryside and experience the holiday season in a different way! Timberline Ranch, located in Maple Ridge, B.C., has transformed a 73-acre horse ranch into a festive winter wonderland. From Nov. 30 until Dec. 22, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday the ranch will be open for its ‘Country Christmas.’ Breathe in the crisp air as you’re surrounded by lights, beautiful trees and interactive scenes! Don’t miss your chance at this one-of-a-kind experience. Registration in advance is required so book soon for the best dates and times

Vancouver Santa Claus Parade

Block off your Sunday, Dec.1, because Santa Claus is coming to town! The annual Santa Claus Parade will wind through Vancouver’s downtown core starting at West Georgia and Broughton at noon, spreading Christmas cheer, concluding at Howe and Davie. For tips on where to find the best views, what to wear, and events taking place at the Christmas Square, visit the official Vancouver Santa Claus Parade site

After all this holiday fun, splurge and give yourself a little gift this season and stay at the Holiday Inn and Suites in North Vancouver where you’ll have access to an indoor pool, sauna, and hot tub to help you forget that a Canadian winter is coming. Take some time during your getaway to pamper yourself some more at the Blu Harbour Wellness and Spa, which offers exclusive packages for hotel guests! However you choose to spend your time, book your stay early to avoid disappointment!
