It’s beginning to look a lot like holidays. Kids school concerts are booked, black Friday is tomorrow, and work functions have been scheduled to celebrate the season. One thing about holidays is that they generally cost a lot of money. It’s good to know where to find activities that will get you into the spirit of the holidays without breaking the bank.

Lantern Festival and Parade in Port Coquitlam
At Leigh Square Community Arts Village
