The Santa Claus Parade of Lights kicks off the holiday season with a takeover of Banff Avenue on December 5th.  Cruising its way up the main drag, colourful floats, lights, and music are greeted by happy revelers.  A number of other family-friendly activities are held throughout town, so plan for a full day of fun.  For a full listing of activities, click here.

3. A Christmas Costume = Complimentary Craving

[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]

Santa Shreds for Free is a long standing tradition at Mt Norquay.  Dress as Santa, Mrs. Claus, or one of his elves and Norquay won’t charge you a thing!  There is no better way to spend Christmas Day than on the slopes decked out in Christmas gear!

4. Country Christmas Dinner

[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]

Nothing says Christmas like a good old-fashioned country dance and nestled behind the Chateau Lake Louise is Brewster’s Dance Barn – possibly the most quintessentially Canadian spot for a Christmas hoedown.  On December 23 ,26, and 29th, Brewster hosts its Country Christmas Dinner.  Expect a decadent beef dinner with all the fixings and a live country band to get the party started!

5. Posh Christmas Possibilities

[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]If swanky is more your style, make a trip up to the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel where the Christmas décor is so lavish it virtually envelops you with holiday spirit.  Seeing their giant gingerbread house is worth a trip up to the hotel in itself, and those lucky enough to be booked into either the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel or the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise have a whole calendar of family-friendly Christmas activities to choose from.
