And the 2023 Winner is …

With the last ornament packed away. lights wrapped, carpets rolled up and the stands and sand bags tucked away for another year, we finally get down to the challenging task of counting the ballots and announcing a winner for Best Overall Tree. This year we introduced an online voting option. As with everything ‘new’, there’s always a learning curve so thank you so much for your patience! The Parade of Trees once again extended onto the plaza at Lynn Valley Centre and we were thrilled to welcome new participants! We know you’ve been eagerly awaiting the results so without further ado, here they are . . . *drumroll please* Best Tree Overall:¬† Sitka Coast Construction Honorable Mention: Silver Harbour Seniors Activity Center Best School Tree: Boundary Elementary School And a special mention to St. Clements with their ‘Building Community Spirit’ Theme.

The Parade of Trees once again extended onto the plaza at Lynn Valley Centre, so there were multiple places that collected votes.

It took a bit of time to gather everything and tally up.

PARADE OF TREES LIGHTING CEREMONY

December 4th from 4:00-5:00PM in Lynn Valley Village

We are so excited to once again kick off this fabulous event with our outdoor lighting ceremony in the Village! We’ve missed it these past couple years so it’s really wonderful to have it back.

Join us at the lighting ceremony for the Parade of Trees on December 4th from 4 – 5 pm, with the lighting at 4:45 pm, with Mayor Mike Little and MLA Susie Chant.

There will be face painting, balloon twisting, a scavenger hunt for the kid and musical entertainment from the Black Bear Band.

Pssst! Also, a surprise finale after the lighting so stick around!

NVRC’s Lantern parade will be at 4:25 pm.

The event is outdoor only and put on with support from North Vancouver Recreation & Culture, Lynn Valley Village, Lynn Valley Centre, Twin Lions Contracting Ltd., Rona, North Vancouver District and the The Great Canadian Landscaping Company Ltd.

Proceeds from this year’s Parade of Trees will go to the Harvest Project.

BECOME A SPONSOR! (there’s still time! Click here and scroll down the page to the registration link)

Sponsoring a tree is a perfect opportunity to promote your business and/or organization, and at the same time, build a stronger community here in Lynn Valley.

It’s coming! The Lynn Valley Community Association 2022 Parade of Trees!

It’s been challenging these last couple of years, but with the help of volunteers, some creative thinking and the support from our community, we were able to install eighty (yes, 80!) decorated Christmas trees for a sell-out Annual Parade of Trees for both 2020 and 2021.  We’re planning to sell out again this year!

Psssst! And our Tree Lighting Ceremony is back as well!

It’s a new year and we’re working to make it as special as always.

Lynn Valley Village and the Lynn Valley Centre Plaza will once again be transformed into an illuminated forest of beautifully decorated trees adding that touch of Christmas spirit.

We are very grateful to all the businesses, clubs, churches, organizations, families, individuals and schools who continue to support this event and bring a little magic to our community each year. 

Do you have your tree?

We’ll be posting the tree sponsors here and on our Facebook page. Stay tuned!

We did it again!

It’s official – we’re a sell out!

We are so excited to tell you that we’ve done it again and SOLD OUT of our available trees for this year!

And we couldn’t have done it without your sponsorship. With everything still in a cautionary holding pattern right now including our Lighting Ceremony, (maybe next year!) we weren’t sure what to expect but all of you rose to the occasion and we will have an amazing display that’s going to spread some Christmas Magic and hopefully bring a smile in a otherwise challenging time.

It’s coming up! The Lynn Valley Community Association 2021 Parade of Trees!

Well, the pandemic made things challenging last year, but with help of volunteers, some creative thinking and the support from our community, we were able to install eighty (yes, 80!) decorated Christmas trees for the 10th Annual Parade of Trees in December 2020. 

Lynn Valley Village was once again transformed into an illuminated forest of beautifully decorated trees and for the first time, we expanded onto the new plaza in front of Starbucks at Lynn Valley Centre where decorated trees added that touch of Christmas spirit.

We are very grateful to all the businesses, clubs, churches, organizations, families, individuals and schools who continue to support this event and bring a little magic to our community each year.
