Wear your favourite ‘ugly’ holiday sweater in downtown Victoria this Friday


‘Tis the season to don your best holiday wear, and we’ve got the place to do it!

On Friday, December 23rd, you’re invited to join the Downtown Victoria Business Association at Lights of Wonder for the Ugly Sweater Party of the season.

When you wear your favourite ugly holiday sweater to Centennial Square Friday night, you’ll have the chance to win tons of great prizes from downtown businesses—and that’s not all!

You’ll also have the opportunity have your photo taken with Father and Mother Christmas! They will be roaming the square spreading holiday cheer.

While you’re there, don’t forget to take advantage of the 360-degree camera! Mr. Booth Photo Experience will be onsite so you can get that picture-perfect Instagram holiday content.

The best part? It’s completely free!

The entire event is also family and pet-friendly, so you’re encouraged to bring the whole family—including those beloved furbabies.

Lights of Wonder runs December 15th until December 31st, and the free, accessible, and all-ages outdoor light display will welcome guests to experience a variety of activities and entertainment each day.

This year, Lights of Wonder will also include nightly performances every night except for on Christmas Day. A schedule of event for each night can be found on the Downtown Victoria Business Association website.

As the Lights of Wonder kicks off at 4 p.m. daily, it’s the perfect way to spend an evening downtown.
