The 25th annual Christmas at Canada Place begins this weekend as one of Vancouver’s most iconic attractions celebrates the season. Once again as a proud media partner of this campaign, I am happy to share all the details for what’s in store from December 8th to December 30th.

    A few days ago I was preparing a list of activities for my children because the Christmas period is approaching and I was so happy when I discovered a list of events that will take place this month here in Toronto with Disney on Ice as one of the attractions prepared for kids. My kids love Disney and they’ll definitely enjoy this kind of trip. What a wonderful present I found without having to wait long hours in the supermarket. 🙂
