Kick Off The Christmas Season With Yaletown’s Free Festival CandyTown

CandyTown is making its seventh annual return, transforming the heritage district of Yaletown into a winter wonderland on Saturday, November 24, 2018. The neighbourhood-wide celebration will feature food, gifts, music and other local vendors.

You can expect plenty of activities and sugar-packed fun! Here’s what’s new for the 2018 lineup:

New this year, CandyTown will expand onto Hamilton and Davie streets. Festivalgoers can dance the day away at an interactive public disco decked out with a glitter station, take a stroll through a life-sized inflatable igloo, or enjoy live ice sculpture demonstrations.

With Christmas crafts gifts, life-sized Santa sleigh ice carving, dancing gingerbreads, specialty cocktails, live music, roving musicians and costumed characters, CandyTown is an event to ignite the festive spirits of even the most stubborn of Scrooges. Kids can create their own candy kebobs at the Candy Hut or visit jolly old Saint Nicholas and the Ice Queen.

Embark on a magical horse-drawn carriage ride outside the Roundhouse Community Centre Turntable and be led on a relaxing seaside jaunt along Pacific Boulevard, Hamilton and Davie streets with a suggested $2 donation to the B.C. Children’s Hospital to help spur on the horses.
