Time to celebrate the holiday season at Cultus Lake Park

Two-day festive event features Santa, a bonfire, and an artisan gift market

Main Beach will be alive with festive holiday season celebrations for Cultus Lake Christmas, a two-day event at the end of the month.

A favourite with locals and visitors alike, the family-friendly event offers big fun for everyone. Along with the lighting of the trees in the park, which is a spectacular visual experience, there is a children’s colouring contest, a visit from Santa Claus, a bonfire with marshmallows, hot chocolate and hot cider, and an artisan gift market.

“Cultus Lake Park is beautiful during the fall and winter seasons. Cultus Lake Christmas allows us to show that off by inviting locals and visitors to come out and celebrate the holiday season with us,” says Cultus Lake Park Board chair Joe Lamb.

“Cultus Lake Park is a special place. Our community is welcoming, inclusive and always ready for family fun. We’re looking forward to seeing Santa, the lighting of the trees, and hosting another great event.”

Cultus Lake Christmas runs Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. each day. There will be free parking in parking lots A and B at the park from 4 to 9 p.m. each day.
