Make it a holly, jolly Christmas at the Vancouver Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration on December 5, 2014 at Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver, BC. The free event features live music, food vendors and a special visit from Santa. Bundle up and watch as 4 trees are lit up starting from 5:30pm to 7pm.
This is an all-new event organized by Kids Help Phone and it’s noted as the first annual Light the Way Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration. For 25 years, Kids Help Phone has been a light in the darkness for kids, teens and young adults who need someone to talk to when things get tough. In an effort to help raise money, buy a bulb to buy kids some time with a professional Kids Help Phone counsellor.
