Looking for something to do with your out of town visitors? The 4th annual Celebrate the Season at the Vancouver Island Visitor Centre runs December 1 to 23 and features an assortment of holiday-spirit, family-friendly activities and events for all ages for visitors and locals alike.

Who could resist participating in the ‘Saturday S’mores’ being held December 2nd, 9th 16th & 23rd where friends and family will gather for S’more making around the Visitor Centre fire rings. Or why not give a gift of creativity with a ‘Make a Keepsake Ornament’ December 2nd & 6th, where visitors and locals alike can make a beautiful ornament to give this season; all materials will be supplied.

For those with a sweet tooth, don’t miss the Cookie Decorating Day, Saturday, December 16th to have some fun while cookie decorating. The Centre will provide all the supplies, you bring the creativity. Kids of all ages won’t want to miss the Free Sunday Christmas Matinee Movies presented December 3rd, 10th & 17th from 1pm-3pm, all you need to do is bring your blankets, as the popcorn will be provided!

There are also daily activities which include Find the Reindeer I-Spy Game, a selection of Christmas books to read by the fire, a selfie-photo booth, complimentary cookies & mulled apple cider, and the always popular craft station.

The activities are no charge, but instead everyone is asked to bring a food bank donation for the Comox Valley Food Bank. Anyone who brings a food bank donation will be entered to win a Vancouver Island Visitor Centre Gift Basket with the draw being held December 23rd. Additionally, the always popular holiday Crackers from Y.A.N.A. will be on sale at the Centre.
