From our archive: Beach House Festival of Lights, West Vancouver 2004

Belweder participated in annual Beach House Festival of Lights organized by North Shore Christmas Bureau - Family Services. Festival entertained thousands of visitors during this month long event. Everyone enjoyed the extravagantly lit and decorated trees surrounding the Dundarave Pier. Donations received from the community during this Festival were distributed in the form of toys, gifts and food certificates to families with children who might otherwise not have celebrated Christmas.
