Heritage Christmas at Burnaby Village Museum offers a season of old-fashioned fun and spectacular lights for all ages to enjoy.
Stroll through the 1920s village and experience a step back in time at this wonderful winter event, presented by Concord Pacific. Appreciate the wreaths, cedar swags and lights; discover special winter and Christmas items in the window displays, step into the shops and businesses to chat to the costumed townsfolk and watch a demonstration or two.
The light displays will delight. There are life-sized figures, at a masquerade ball, dancing behind a curtain of lights. Look up, way up, to see all the lights on a huge maple tree. The globe lights in the bandstand respond to sound with ever changing brightness and colour.
Take time for a thrilling ride on the vintage carousel, pose for a picture with our unique team of reindeer and stop for a treat at the Ice Cream Parlour.
Heritage Christmas Highlights Include:
Every Sunday afternoon the aroma of baking wafts from the Farmhouse kitchen as gingerbread or shortbread cookies come out of the wood-fired oven.
