More exciting events around town

Do I do anything except go to events around town and go shopping? Apparently not. I go to the events to take pictures, really. Anyway, here is one Christmas-related event and one Winter Solstice event.

Canada Place is all decked out in colourful trees
sponsored by various companies around town. Not only is it pretty to look at, but you can see a few local employers who may be interesting to work for and…see…research of the local market! It could help you in the future. And since I’m nothing if not a one trick pony, I have photos on flickr and here’s a giant nutcracker head:

This Friday, the Secret Lantern Society is putting on a Winter Solstice Lantern Festival in Chinatown. I think I’ll meet up with people at Science World and walk over that way. I’ve never been into the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Gardens, so this seems like a good time to go. It will probably be pretty crowded, but interesting for sure. An added bonus for the Winter Solstice Walk? My favourite store for tiki stuff – Funhauser will be open late for the festival. Please note, no one asked me to promote any of this stuff, I just like it all. I promise.
