Come see an outdoor Christmas light show that the whole family can enjoy! Milner Gardens proudly presents their annual Christmas Magic event. Stroll your way through over 1 kilometre filled with decorated and lit-up trails. Come and hi to Santa who will be visiting the gardens! Drop in for a cup of tea in the Camellia Tea Room or sample a few refreshments at the outdoor stand. Come and see the Teddy Bear Cottage, VIU baking students’ gingerbread houses, storytellers, and more festive displays.
