Bowen Island, all lit up!
The rains stopped just in time to give the crowd a chance to enjoy all the Light Up Bowen festivities.
Artisan Square was all lit up! Lynn Williams and the Morris Dancers welcomed the crowds. Artisan Eats served up Crepes and warm drinks.
The lanterns lit the way down to Village Square where there was more dancing and warm treats served up by Ruddy Potato. Davies Orchard and the Heritage Museum were all dressed up for the season and along the path, Tuscany surprised the crowd with pizza and warm cookies.
Then on to the Rotary Stage for a lovely Nativity Scene produced by Cates Hill Chapel. The scene came to life with a Christmas sing-a-long by the crowd.
Rondy set off his cannon indicating the Light Up at 7pm and the arrival of Santa was soon to be!
Santa was sponsored by Bowen Island Pub and arrived with Cormorant Marine at the helm.
On Doc's patio, the children whispered their Xmas wishes to Santa, while the adults enjoyed the Mulled wine provided by Doc Morgans and USSC. Lot's of cookies and hot chocolate provided by the Snug cafe, Tuscany Restaurant and Miksa Restaurant.
The Bowen Island volunteer fire department whisked Santa away to his next engagement, and the rains started again.
Many thanks to all the the Volunteers that made this night happen.
Happy Holidays to all,
