Seven family friendly events in Vancouver this weekend, December 14-16, 2018

The holiday season is really hopping, and there are loads of family holiday events in Vancouver. This weekend, there are two parties for the littlest of festive folks at Circus Play Cafe and at Main St’s Chorus and Clouds. Craft fair fans won’t want to miss the Make it! market at the PNE, and in New West, it’s the annual Santa Claus parade. Fort Langley’s annual holiday fest takes place this weekend with Santa, music, crafts and more, and it’s the final weekend to board the Polar Express in Squamish. Grab a ticket if there are any left! Of course there are tons of ongoing Christmas events too. Check it out and have a holly jolly weekend!
