Winter Vibes: A Local Guide to South Delta’s Best Holiday Events, Activities & Entertainment

Winter Vibes: South Delta’s Best Holiday Events
A comprehensive list of Ladner and Tsawwassen’s top offerings for the 2023 holiday season.

With Christmas parties, gift buying, and meal planning — and not to mention cooking of said meals — the holiday season often feels like it comes and goes in a whirlwind of pine-scented festivity and Michael Bublé’s greatest hits. It can be overwhelming to wrap your head around your seemingly endless to-do list. But along with ensuring you squeeze in some much-needed rest and relaxation, why not add some fun and frivolity to your schedule with a few local events, activities, and entertainment?
Jen and Amber wish you Happy Holidays!
We’ve done the legwork to round up a list of some of the most festive things to see and do in Ladner and Tsawwassen over the holidays. After skating around the rink at our client appreciation event on November 13th, we’re definitely feeling the holiday spirit, and we want to spread the joy. Grab a to-go mug of peppermint hot chocolate, lace up your skates, and let’s get merry!
