(This story is sponsored by Point Grey Village Business Improvement Area.)
The holiday season is just around the corner. But even if you’re feeling unprepared and distinctly un-Christmas-y then a visit to the beautiful Point Grey Village could be just what you need. That’s because from now until December 24, the area's shopping and restaurant district along West 10th—between Tolmie and Discovery streets—will host a number of fun holiday activities to get you in the mood.
With stores offering everything from high fashion to crafts and toys—and beyond—you’ll be sure to find something for everyone. And you can feel good about supporting some of the wonderful, independent businesses in the area.
Even better, there will be a whole new joy added to your window shopping experience, namely in the form of Nicholas Frenette’s stunning artwork. Returning for his second year, many of the Point Grey Village windows have been adorned with the artist’s holiday imaginings, making the area well worth a visit even if you’ve checked off everyone on your list already. It takes Frenette up to two weeks to complete, but the finished work makes for a beautiful backdrop.
But visitors to Point Grey Village won’t just be able to enjoy the Christmas sights since Season’s Singers will be performing carols every Saturday until Christmas starting this weekend (December 1). Make sure you check the schedule on the website so that you don’t miss out.
And for those looking to keep their little ones entertained, the Vancouver Puppet Theatre will be putting on a show for preschool-age children at the School of Inquiry (4406 West 10th Avenue). Space is limited so get there early to avoid disappointment. The show starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
