Holiday competition brings pizzazz to Burnaby Heights
BURNABY, B.C. – Things have never looked brighter for the holidays on Burnaby Heights. In addition to the shimmering holiday lights, a year-long pilot project by the City of Burnaby, the local merchants will be all-hands-on-decking the Heights for the holidays.
The Heights Merchants Association is celebrating the season with a new festive event, Deck the Heights, with a spotlight on the windows of local businesses. The event will run from Dec. 7-20, 2019. Participating Heights businesses will be competing for the Best Window Display award, voted by you and three Jolly Judges. Four lucky winners who voted for their favourite window display will be entered for a chance to win Christmas basket filled with Burnaby Heights goodies and swag.
To add to the festivity, Santa and his elf will be visiting the neighbourhood on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. along with the talented Fandango Quartet as they croon holiday carols from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Santa’s friends will also spread holiday cheer by giving away candy canes on Saturday, Dec. 14. The carolers will be back on Sunday, Dec. 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Lastly, the talented jazz guitarist Matt Franceschini will be serenading us with holiday classics on Dec. 20 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Carleton Square.
With a focus on shopping locally this holiday season, we invite you to check our website for the list of local merchants who are offering special activities and promotions. Our businesses are filled with festive spirit, holiday music, special pricing, and giveaways to make the shopping season bright. There is no better place to shop locally this season than on Heights.
