Annual community event kicks off season at Park Royal followed by Santa’s arrival at their Urban Barn designed set
West Vancouver, BC – November 7, 2017 – On Friday, November 17 Park Royal ushers in the season when it illuminates The Village during the annual countdown ceremony. Then, on Saturday, November 18 kids young and old can join Santa at his home designed by Urban Barn.
Festivities will be open to the public November 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in The Village at Park Royal. The official Light Up The Village countdown will happen at 6:45pm sharp hosted by Marke Driesschen, in the centre of the Village surrounding the spectacular 30’ Christmas tree.
While the evening’s event and entertainment is free of charge, there will be a variety of special activities, like cookie decorating and face painting that will be by $2 donation. All proceeds will go directly to Lions Gate Hospital Foundation to help further the outstanding impact they continue to have on our community. Additional highlights for this family friendly evening include performances by Top Line Choir, Vanleena Dance Academy, Karla Sax and an appearance from the big guy himself to assist in the lighting.
The very next morning (Saturday, November 18), families can join Santa again when he arrives at his home designed by Urban Barn. For the second year, Park Royal has teamed up with the local contemporary furniture, home décor, and accessories retailer who has designed and decorated this year’s set in the theme “Right at Home with Santa”. Activities on Saturday begin at 10:30am with face painting and a musical dance performance and Santa arrives at 11am. Come early, the first 100 visits will go home with a signature 200g Lindt Teddy chocolate bear.
If you are looking to beat the rush, this year, Park Royal is offering Santa’s FASTPASS, an online photo pre-order and reservation system. Every visit with Santa this season will receive a complimentary LINDOR chocolate truffle from Lindt, while quantities last.
Park Royal’s spectacular holiday light display is open to the public from November 17 through January 2018.
