604 Holiday Mall Events Roundup

Vancouver Holiday Shopping

It’s not quite December, but the holiday festivities have already begun – lights are going up in neighborhoods, holiday décor is for sale, and you may have even re-downloaded seasonal music onto your iPod.

For many, the holidays also include excessive trips to the mall. For that reason, I have compiled a list of key HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES happening at malls around the Lower Mainland!

Whether you are a shopaholic, or resent stepping into any shopping center, you’ll find that going to the mall can entail much more than just spending money!
