Had a lovely drive thru spruce meadows to admire the winter Christmas light display. Lots of great efforts put in. There is also a large fire pit with hot chocolate to warm up if you choose to walk the paths.

Not only can see world-class riding events but there are many kid-friendly events and activities on an ongoing basis. Their Christmas artisan fair is not to be missed.
