Annual community event kicks off at Park Royal followed by the opening of their new Santa set designed by Canadian furniture retailer Urban Barn
West Vancouver, BC – November 2, 2016 – On Friday, November 18 Park Royal ushers in the season when it illuminates The Village during the annual countdown ceremony. Then, on Saturday, November 19 kids young and old can join Santa at his new home designed by Urban Barn.
Festivities will be open to the public November 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in both the Park Royal South Simons wing and 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 many of the evening’s activities are free of charge, there will be a variety of special activities, like cookie decorating and face painting that will be by donation via tickets that can be purchased on site for $2 each. 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 complimentary hot chocolate, retailer booths, singing trio Fandango, the jazz stylings of Karla Sax and an appearance from the big guy himself to assist in the lighting.
The very next morning (Saturday, November 19), families can join Santa again when he arrives at his new home designed by Urban Barn. This 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 Lindt Teddy chocolate bear.
Unique this year, Park Royal has elected to eschew typical interior mall décor to work with their own tenant, Whole Foods Market, who has designed festive arrangements to be placed throughout Park Royal South.
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 http://bit.ly/2ekaSWW. Every visit with Santa this season will receive a complimentary Lindt chocolate truffle, while quantities last, to celebrate the new Lindt store opening in The Village later in November.
