Join us from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, at Grandview Park, when The Commercial Drive Business Society presents the annual free public event, Christmas on The Drive.


We invite you, your friends, and your family to join us in celebrating the start of the Holiday Season!


Share in the joy and laughter of the Christmas Season with free pictures with Santa, and horse-drawn carriage rides down Commercial Drive – (Embarkation/Disembarkation at The Drive Mortgage Store, 1250 Commercial Drive).


Treats and hot beverages will also be available for the kids at The Drive Mortgage Store.


Sing along to seasonal live music, or visit the Kids Zone, featuring a caricature artist, balloon-twisting clown, face painter and craft area.


New this year - Join us at the Telus tent, to write your 'letters to Santa'.


Get your selfies taken with our lighted blowup Christmas themed blow ups and be sure to stay for the main event of the evening; Christmas tree lighting at 5:00pm, which will see an extra special addition this year, LED FX stilted performers – not to be missed!


This exciting annual event is sure to bring Christmas cheer for the entire family, and is proudly produced and funded by the Commercial Drive Business Society.
