Christmas is coming, actually, it’s here according to some of the local radio stations. Soon we will see our favourite lights brightening the evenings and more importantly, some of our favourite Holiday locations will be open for visitors.

The old fashioned spirit of Christmas comes alive during Heritage Christmas at the Burnaby Village Museum, presented by Concord Pacific, which returns for the holiday season beginning November 21 with spectacular light displays and historical exhibits in the 1920s village. 

“Visiting Burnaby Village Museum during Heritage Christmas is a beloved tradition for many families,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “For many people, it’s just not Christmas until you’ve been to Heritage Christmas, and we’re happy to be hosting it again this year.”

Heritage Christmas runs from November 21, 2020 until January 1, 2021. Families can stop by the Burnaby Lake General Store and learn about popular store purchases in the 1920s or stop by the newly renovated Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co. Herbalist shop to discover the role Chinese medicine has played in shaping communities like Burnaby.
