The first annual Yule Duel is coming to Gastown Dec. 3. The caroling competition is expected to draw thousands of people together. Funds raised will go to May’s Place, a hospice in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside neighbourhood.
Over 20 choirs will gather in Gastown with a goal to raise $20,000. Choir styles will include everything from barbershop harmony to gospel, and will showcase festive costumes, choreographed dances and holiday lyrics.
