It Takes a Village
The West Coast Christmas Show is pleased to welcome It Takes A Village Artisans: Paying It Forward, a group of exhibitors who’s focus is giving back.
Now your Christmas purchases can help improve our world, by shopping among the gathering of community-minded artisans who are committed to giving back. Fair trade, zero waste and community support through giving back are all components of this feature area.
Santa’s helpers are ready to help children decorate and take home their very own free Christmas cookie!
Kids can create their own Sand Art, pictures created with coloured sand.
Children can write and mail their letters to Santa, right at the show in Santa’s Workshop.
Meet the players and shoot some hoops with Abbotsford’s very own basketball team, The Fraser Valley Bandits!
