Thursday, September 29, 2011 - Magic of Christmas at Butchart Gardens - Dec. 1 - Jan 6


December 1st, 2011 marks the start of the 25th season of festive Christmas displays.

Tens of thousands of coloured lights combine with evergreen swags and wreaths of holly and winter berries to line walkways and festoon lamp posts. The ever-popular Twelve Days of Christmas displays are tucked away about The Gardens.

From 5 pm to 9 pm in the Piazza you will find lively performances featuring traditional caroling and music.

Enjoy some recreational ice skating on our 307 sq. m (3,300 sq. ft.) outdoor rink. No need to worry about hockey sticks flying about, or figure skaters making you look bad.

Skating is available daily during admission hours. Just show up and skate at the next available time, or you can book a time by visiting the Visitor Information Centre upon arrival. Skate times run on the hour and last for 40 minutes. The rink capacity is 50, so be sure to bring your friends.

2011 Skate prices are Adults $5 plus tax, Youth (13-17) $4 plus tax, and Children (12 and under) $3 plus tax. Admission to The Gardens is required. Skate rentals are available on a first come basis for $3 plus tax per pair. Helmets and wrist guards are available at no charge. *Rates are quoted in Canadian dollars and are subject to 12% HST (Harmonized Sales Tax).

Skate club performances are on several Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm.

Thursday, September 29, 2011 - Ghost Tours - Oct. 22-29

Ghost Bus Tours have become Victoria's most popular Halloween activity over the past 18 years. Tour routes are developed and are narrated by John Adams, a well-known local historian and ghost expert who has appeared many times on the Creepy Canada TV series. Each year the two-hour route is different and includes many new stories as well as some of the favourites from previous years. Ghost Bus Tours leave from a secret Victoria location! Only once you reserve and pay for your ticket will you find out the departure location! Seating is limited on each bus and tickets sell out quickly, so book early.

Please Note: Ghost Bus Tour tickets are not available at the bus, all tickets must be purchased in advance.

Details can be found on teh Tourism Victoria site here or Discover the past website here.

Thursday, September 29, 2011 - Whale Watching season ends at end of October!

Whale Watching Season on until end October! 

We recently visited ourselves and had a great time with Ocean Explorations.  Highly recommended, and just a short walk from the condo units you'll be staying in.
