The Yaletown Business Improvement Association is proud to announce the 5th annual free outdoor Christmas festival – CandyTown. Last year, an estimated 15,000 people came out to Candytown to kick off the holidays.

Downtown Vancouver’s only free winter festival will transform Mainland Street into a winter wonderland. Lights and candy canes will adorn lamp poles and costumed characters will parade down the street. Holiday shoppers are invited to start their seasonal gift buying in Yaletown with local merchants as well as a specialty market carrying unique gifts and holiday treats. You’ll also find Mainland Street filled with local artisans, street performers and live music.

This outdoor Christmas festival is free, open to the public and sure to get people into the Christmas spirit.

    Sounds like a great event but why do they need to have horse carriage rides, especially in that concentrated area (people, cars etc)
