Yaletown To Transform Into CandyTown For One Day Only This Saturday

Even the lampposts get covered in candy.

Remember being a kid and wishing you could visit the magical winter wonderlands from your holiday storybooks? This outdoor Christmas festival gives you a taste of just that.

As Downtown Vancouver's only free winter festival CandyTown will help you kick off the holidays like no other event in town.

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 enjoy themed cocktails. Should I say that again? Themed cocktails!

Put on by the Yaletown Business Improvement Association, CandyTown completely transforms Mainland Street: lampposts are covered by lights and candy canes, and costumed characters parade down the street.

Come find the perfect gift 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, uhh, 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 26th from 12pm-7pm at 1152 Mainland Street.
