Vancouver, BC., one of the prettiest towns in the world, transforms into a winter wonderland during the holidays with decorations and events celebrating Christmas and ringing in the New Year. In keeping with tradition and the spirit of the season the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver and YEW restaurant + bar is spreading the joy with lots of family-oriented festivities.
For starters the hotel lobby gets a series dose of Christmas spirit with dozens of Christmas trees each decorated by a sponsor to raise funds and awareness for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, including presenting sponsor Lush Handmade Cosmetics and co-host Cadillac Fairview Corporation.
Now in its 26th year, the Festival of Trees is a sure sign that Christmas is on the way; it also signals the annual Crystal Ball, the premier fundraising gala for child health in British Columbia and one of the most exclusive holiday events in Vancouver. The trees are on display from now through January 1, 2012 where visitors are welcome to soak up some of the holiday spirit. Visitors can vote for their favorite tree by submitting a donation and entering a draw to win one of three great sponsor prizes.
If you love a parade don’t miss Santa Claus as he parades through town. Book the Rogers Santa Claus Parade Package and turn the experience into a memorable family getaway. Away from the crowds and in the comfort of one of our luxurious guest rooms, enjoy a perfect parade-viewing position in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
Head up early and so some serious shopping at the nearby Pacific Centre Mall or venture off to some of Vancouver’s signature Christmas attractions like Stanley Park’s Bright Nights or Grouse Mountain’s Peak of Christmas.
The Four Seasons Vancouver package includes:
- One night luxury accommodation that offers a prime view to watch the parade.

Back for the holidays the Kids in the City Package is designed for guests ages 5-12 who are greeted with a souvenir Vancouver T-shirt and an in-room treat from the chef, designed to energize them for the active day ahead. They can slip into child-sized Four Seasons robes and make their way to at the Hotel’s indoor/outdoor pool located in the Health Club or hit the Playzone Game Room which is filled with ping pong tables, football table, board games, DVDs, and the latest and greatest in video game technology, including Wii and PlayStation 3.
