It’s that time of year for holiday lights, hot chocolate, and sitting by the fire!
On the Coast the holiday season is always popular and at Trail Bay Centre we love participating in all the events and seeing the sense of community in Sechelt.
This year, you can look forward to a few events going on at the mall.
We are happy to have Santa back at Trail Bay this season for photos on December 4, 11, & 18th from 10am-2pm. Photos are
by donation to the food bank and will be available for viewing online this year. All safety protocols will be followed at this event
including social distancing and mandatory masks for ages 5+. Santa’s mailbox will be set up, however, please respect social
distancing rules when it comes to wish lists or letters for Santa. There will be no pet photos with Santa this year, however we
look forward to seeing everyone say Happy Holidays with Santa!
Second, Shop Hop!
From December 2-9 Downtown Sechelt will transform into an amazing holiday wonderland where you can browse through
your favourite shops and support our local businesses. This event will include music, holiday treats, and more! Trail Bay
Centre will be open until 7pm on December 2nd and December 9th for some late night shopping fun as well. We can’t
wait to see all the lights go up and the shoppers come out!
Third, Festival of Lights!
Another event by Sechelt Downtown Business Association we can’t wait for! On Saturday December 11th start at Trail Bay Centre
for Kids Make & Take Crafts from 3-4:30. Then you can head up to Rockwood Lodge for Light the Lights at 5pm. Finally make your
way back to Cowrie Street for the Parade of Lights at 5:45pm. If that wasn’t all exciting enough, there will also be food vendors and
other holiday light displays to see! This is a public outdoor FREE event where masks are recommended but not mandatory.
If you are a business, organization and family wishing to participate in the parade you can register on SDBA’s website for $20.
We hope everyone else is as excited as we are for these events! For all events coming up and current updates be sure to follow our instagram and facebook, as well as check the website frequently.
