Victoria Royals coverage presented by:

Sitka Law Group


After their official light-up this past weekend, the spirit of Christmas is alive and well at Butchart Gardens – and this Sunday you can get an extra dose of holiday cheer!

On Sunday, December 8th the Victoria Royals will be skating around the garden’s 5,000 sq. ft. rink, and fans can meet the WHL players and get autographs from their favourite team members!

To add to the excitement, Marty the Marmot will also be making an appearance on ice in addition to the team.

The team will be at Butchart from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m., but make sure you get there early because spaces are limited!

You can pick up tickets at the Visitor Centre when you arrive, and you’re welcome to bring your own skates or rent them at the rink.

This fun family friendly event will cap off a busy week for the Victoria Royals, as they return home to face division rivals the Vancouver Giants on Wednesday, December 4th, with back to back contests versus the Seattle Thunderbirds following this on both Friday, December 6th and Saturday, December 7th – and Saturday is Teddy Bear Toss Night!
