West Vancouver Dundarave BEach House Christmas Trees and Festival of Lights

Dec 4, 2007

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


I look forward to this every year. The throwing of the switch down at West Vancouver's Dundarave pier always signals the start of the Christmas season for me as dozens of decorated, sponsored trees all glow with light along the seashores. It's a uniquely North Shore event that the Beach House Restaurant has been part of for 14 years now. Check out the sights yourself with some hot chocolate - on now until Jan 2, 2008

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
