The holiday season has finally arrived in Victoria, bringing with it a number of festive events and must-see displays, including the Festival of Trees! This annual tradition has been delighting residents and visitors for the last 27 years, and transforms the Bay Centre (located in the downtown core, just minutes away from the Royal Scot) into a forested wonderland of uniquely decorated trees.  The event runs during Centre hours from November 17th to January 3rd and gives visitors to the Bay Centre the opportunity to vote on their favourite trees, as well as collecting donations for the BC Children’s Hospital.  This year the money raised will go towards research into childhood diabetes, so if you’re in town, consider stopping by, casting your votes and supporting a good cause while taking in this magical display!

More information can be found at the Bay Centre website or at the BC Children’s Hospital event page.
