The 37th Annual Island Farms Santa Light Parade will be taking place on November 24. This fun, family-friendly community event always promises to deliver plenty of fun. There’ll be Santa Claus there, handing out treats to the kids, before the main event, which is the turning on of the Christmas lights, which takes place at 7 pm.
Head down to Esquimalt Recreation Centre & Archie Browning Sports Centre from December 1 onwards, and you’ll find that it's been transformed into a winter wonderland, with lights and decorations everywhere. An excellent way to soak up all the magic of the holiday season.
If you’re hungry while you’re exploring Victoria, then make sure you head down to the back courtyard of the Royal BC Museum, which has been turned into an international food truck zone. There you’ll find delicious foods from all around the world, all put together by people who really know how to prepare and present food. You won’t leave hungry, we’re sure.
