This Weekend in Vancouver – Candytown takes over Mainland in Yaletown

CandyTown_ID-300x175The Yaletown Business Improvement Association recently announced the 2nd annual free outdoor Christmas festival – Candytown. Last year, an estimated 15,000 people came out to Candytown to kick off the holidays.

Downtown Vancouver’s only free winter festival will transform Mainland Street into a winter wonderland with some pretty intense decorations I got to scope out last week. Holiday shoppers are invited to start their seasonal gift buying in Yaletown with local merchants as well as a specialty market carrying unique gifts and holiday treats. You’ll also find Mainland Street filled with local artisans, street performers and live music.

This outdoor Christmas festival is free and sure to get you into the Christmas spirit.

  • Live Music
