As it turns out, it’s the largest Christmas parade celebrated in Western Canada! Seemed like a perfect opportunity to take out the DSLR and go capture some photos, so that’s what my wife and I did. Here are the results.

Following the parade, we thought we would explore Vancouver a bit, so we started with the obvious - what was right around us after the parade ended. The following photos came out of that:

Oh and there is also a neat spot that can work well if you have some time, are not afraid of the cold and have a car to get there, since there is no public transit that goes way up the mountains. This is the Cypress Mountain Viewpoint.
