Canada Place is good for something other than IMAX movies and taking scenic photos of the North Shore – there are usually some pretty neat seasonal events taking place inside and out. This year they are serving up a plethora of activities for the kiddies while supporting an excellent cause.
Christmas @ Canada Place will involve:
The part I’m looking forward to is the Woodward’s window displays: “A time-honoured tradition, the animated Woodward’s Window Displays are a part of Vancouver’s history. Bring back sweet childhood memories, while creating new ones for you and your family, as you view the charming holiday windows. Each beautifully restored Woodwardâ€™s Window portrays a classic holiday scene displayed as they were decades before.” [VancouverPlus]
I’m a HUGE sucker for Christmas window displays reminiscent of Macy’s or the fictional Higbees of A Christmas Story.
