Bring your family and friends and be immersed in the festive season as you tour a lush forest of one-of-a-kind decorate trees to raise funds for BC Children's Hospital Foundation. A must-see event known as Victoria’s unofficial kick-off to the holiday season for the last 27 years. While you are there, be sure to vote for your favourite tree in support of BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
