The Christmas Express!


‘Twas the month before Christmas

And there arose such a fuss

A load of keen shoppers filling a bus

Come on Prancer and Dancer, move it let’s rally

Christmas awaits us in the Fraser Valley

Join our jolly gang for a Christmas shopping day extraordinaire as we head out to the valley for a heavy dose of Yuletide shopping, sipping and sampling.

The bus leaves Capilano University right at 8am and the festivities begin then and carry on until our estimated return at 6pm.  Coffee, seasonal treats and other surprises as we motor along to and fro.

The Abbotsford Farm Market is out first stop then on the ChocolaTas to learn all about chocolate which, of course, will involve some serious tasting of the yummiest chocolate ever (get those stocking stuffers here) and then to the delightful Glenda’s Christmas Cottage.

A 3 Course luncheon will be catered just for us at Brambles Bistro in Tanglebank Gardens with more shopping amidst a Holiday wonderland.

But save your strength as we next hit the West Coast Christmas Show at Tradex, Western Canada’s Leading Holiday season show.

And last but not least a private wine tasting at the beautiful Mt. Lehman Winery.

Then home we travel, visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads, ok maybe not sugar plums but you are sure to get into the spirit of the season after a day like this!

Sign up soon, limited seating on the Christmas Express for the naughty and the nice.
