There is nothing like beautiful lights and Christmas decorations as the backdrop for winter holiday photos.
Richmond is no exception when it comes to gorgeous decorations and events.
A 52-foot Christmas tree along with various light-up decorations has been placed around the outdoor shopping centre. The lights will be up all month-long and everyone has access to the displays during shopping hours.
CF Richmond Centre
Santa has returned for photos, but if paying for a photo is not your thing there is a giant light-up moose, some twinkling deer and a walk-through Christmas ornament available for photos for free.
Richmond City Hall
Twenty-feet high giant Christmas baubles are outside Richmond City Hall once again and are lit up during the evening.
As part of Steveston Village’s Winter in the Village event, Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, Steveston Museum as well as the Steveston Tram have all been adorned with sparkling lights and decorations. The lights will be up for the month of December for everyone to take photos of.
There is also a giant walk-through light ornament at the intersection of No.1 Road and Bayview Street.
Multiple retailers and restaurants in the village also have holiday decorations up.
Gulf of Georgia Cannery
An annual display of decorated trees has been set up at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site. These trees are decorated by different local organizations or community groups.
If scrolling through Instagram isn’t enough, Lansdowne Centre has three festive “Instagram boxes” around the mall for those who are looking for holiday photo ideas.
While it’s no surprise that every several months Aberdeen has a new display in the mall’s atrium. This month, there is a giant winter holiday display with a tree and a giant gingerbread man.
Unfortunately, the display is fenced off, but it makes for a good background.
