Festivities begin at 10:30 a.m. at Coast Capital Savings Christmas Square in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery.  Enjoy face painting, decorate gingerbread men, make Christmas tree ornaments and write letters to Santa, while listening to holiday grooves from Vancouver’s funky LeftCoast band. You can also donate non-perishable foods to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

The parade itself kicks off at 1 p.m. sharp from the corner of Georgia and Broughton Streets. The 1.8-kilometre route travels along Georgia Street before turning up Howe Street and finishing on Davie Street. (See map below.)
