Christmas kicks off with a vengeance in the Tri-Cities this weekend, beginning with the amazing Lafarge Lake Christmas lights being switched on Saturday at 6PM – Metro Vancouver’s largest, free outdoor light display.  The event goes until 8.30PM with live entertainment on 2 stages, food trucks, roving entertainers, buskers, family crafts and the Crystal fire and light show, featuring Cirque du Soleil alumni, theatre actors and opera singers. Best advice – dress warm and dry (specially footwear).

Port Coquitlam’s Leigh Square Community Arts Village will light up with ceremony on Saturday between 1-5PM.

Share Food Bank is top of mind at this time of year and a number of community Christmas events support Share.

Pitt Meadows is hosting a popular one this Sunday (25th) at Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall from 11AM – 4PM – The Local Love Holiday Pop up market – $3 admission.

 Moving forward to next Saturday, December 1, the excitement moves to Port Moody at Rocky Point Park 6pm for Cheer at the Pier when the pier and gazebo will light up, Santa will visit, the holiday mini train will be in action along with carol singers and lots of hot chocolate.  At this event our firefighters are looking for unwrapped toys for their toy drive.

Christmas shoppers at Coquitlam Centre can once more look forward to having their gifts wrapped between December 1 and 24th.  All proceeds to Share.

The most spectacular Food Bank event is the CP Christmas train which will once more make entertaining stops at Port Moody (behind the Rec. Centre) and Port Coquitlam (West Coast Express Station) December 18 – 5.20PM and 7PM respectively. Really fun for the whole family.

Watch out for more upcoming festive events – we are a busy, fun-loving community with lots going on!

Meanwhile we realtors look forward to showing those dressed up, lit up homes at this time of year – it’s a little magical!  Why not share your Christmas lights and decor with us  on our Facebook page?

Let’s get in the real spirit, and  remember those who need our help specially in this season, which is not happy for everyone. There are lots of great ways we can lend a hand with volunteering, supporting our local food bank, sharing Christmas hampers, shoe boxes etc.  Every little helps and yes – one person can make a difference!

Making a difference is always our goal whether at work or at play. When it comes to real estate, we keep you covered even in the festive season!  See you at one of our many community events
