Lifesize gingerbread men, horse-drawn carriages, and giant candy canes, CandyTown is everything your childhood Christmas dreams were made of any more.
For one day only on Saturday, November 25, Yaletown's CandyTown is back for another round of holiday cheer and Christmas festivities. Your familiar Yaletown streets will become completely unrecognizable because CandyTown will deck the streets in lights, candy canes, and parading costumed characters.
There will be visits with Santa and the Ice Queen, free horse carriage rides, ice carving demonstrations, candy making, crafts and a Christmas Tree lot. You can even get Christmas themed cocktails! Talk about a holiday hangover before the holidays even begin.
You'll even be able to find that perfect gift for the person you have no idea what to get at the "All I Want for Christmas" market filled with local merchants, and enjoy some of Vancouver's best eats and drinks while you're at it. You can enjoy everything from cotton candy to fresh oysters...but yeah...probably not together.
Haven't you always wanted to ride down Pacific Blvd on a horse-drawn carriage? Add it to your winter bucket list.
Don't miss out on the chance to see Mainland Street filled with street performers, live music, local artisans, and good cheer. Last year, an estimated 15,000 people partook in the celebrations. Come be one of them this November 25th from 12 PM to 7 PM at 1152 Mainland Street.
