It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so we (the jolly team at North Shore News) have created a map that lights the way to all the best holiday displays across the North Shore.
While the holiday season might be a little different this year, with COVID-19 restrictions in place to keep everybody safe, it doesn’t mean families and household bubbles can’t have a little festive fun.
Many North Vancouverites have taken to decking out their yards with beautiful displays to help spread extra cheer and they’re well worth a look.
There’s everything from giant blow-up Santa and friends displays, rooftops lined with the characters from Dr. Seuss’ Whoville, and simply stunning traditional showcases that are sure to put a smile on even the Grinch’s dial.
North Shore News publisher Peter Kvarnstrom can vouch for the amazing effort put in by residents. He's been rockin' his way around all the Christmas displays, taking pictures for us this week.
"What a delight to see so many great Christmas light displays this year," said Kvarnstrom.
"We really enjoyed the spirit of Christmas as we cruised around the Shore taking them all in.
"My top honours this year have to be the amazing homes out at 2235 and 2225 Badger Rd. in the Cove.
"Our standout this year has to go to the Hobson household at 1279 Keith Rd. in Pemberton Heights. Enjoy!"
If you have a dazzling display of your own, don’t forget to tell us so we can add it to the map. You can send a picture and your address here.
We hope this map helps you navigate your way to some seriously festive fun. Follow the🎄 to find neighbourhood displays and the 🦌 to find community lights and attractions.
Happy Holidays, North Shorerites!
