Christmas is coming!

The countdown is on!  Christmas Day is now less than one month away.  Have you started your holiday preparations?  Here at the Cove we have started putting up our Christmas lights around the property and since the sun is now setting before 5pm, the lights definitely brighten up the long winter nights.

Some of Santa’s elves putting up greenery.

We are also lucky enough to have weekend visits from Santa in our office and if you are here visiting us on one of the weekends leading up to Christmas, be sure to sign up for pictures with Santa at the front desk.  You can have pictures of your kids, your pets, and even yourself!

If you still have some Christmas shopping to do (or start), this Friday November 30, the town of Ucluelet is hosting their annual Midnight Madness.  This is a great opportunity to get out in the community, meet some locals, and get some deals.  Businesses are open late (a lot of them until 11pm or midnight) and in addition to great sales and promotions, most stores will have complementary holiday refreshments and treats.  Then on December 12 is the Santa Sail Past in Ucluelet (or Ukee as us locals call it) where local boats get decked out in holiday lights and sail through the harbour; a great west coast tradition not to be missed!

If you missed last weekends Jingle Into Christmas event in Tofino, there is still the Beaches Complex Holiday Block Party on Saturday December 1 from 6:00pm until late.  There will be Christmas specials, live music by Sandy Wu, complementary treats and refreshments, and more. 

Two great nights full of holiday cheer.  Hope to see you out!
