Santa's Arrival

Lougheed Town Centre is thrilled to announce that Santa Claus is ditching the North Pole early and relocating his workshop to Burnaby’s best-loved mall this Saturday, November 23! Saint Nick’s arrival will feature tons of kid-friendly activities including a parade of everyone’s favourite Christmas characters and Metro Vancouver’s first ever shopping centre snowfall.

Check out the full schedule for November 23rd:

10:00AM – Winter Wonderland Stilt Walkers
Entertainment will soar to new heights as these leggy performers warm up the crowd for all the frosty festivities

10:30AM – How the Grinch Stole Christmas Show
Santa’s old frenemy, The Grinch, stars in this special theatrical production – with an exclusive meet and greet for his fans

11:00AM – Santa Claus Parade
Jolly old Saint Nick himself will lead everyone’s favourite Christmas characters, from Frosty the Snowman to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, in a merry traipse around the mall (complete with marching band!)

11:15AM – First Indoor Snowfall
The forecast calls for a white Christmas season, indoors and out! Lougheed Town Centre is proud to launch Metro Vancouver’s first and only shopping mall snowfall program, continuing five times daily until December 24

11:30AM – Holiday Crafts and Letters to Santa
Kids can send their Christmas wish lists straight to the source and receive a personal reply from Santa

Not to be outdone, Santa’s better half Mrs. Claus has organized a selection of special perks for shoppers, including free 5×7 photos with Santa every Monday from November 25 to December 23, and an exclusive Santa paging system – the perfect antidote to horrendous holiday line-ups. From November 23 to December 24, visitors can simply provide their name at Santa’s workshop and get paged when it’s their turn to saddle up on Santa’s knee.
