Light Up the Quay!

It's time for the sixth annual Light Up The Quay, a fun and friendly competition put on by the Quayside Community Board that helps increase donations to the winter food drive and encourages neighbours to duke it out for awards.

It’s time for the sixth annual Light Up The Quay, a fun and friendly competition put on by the Quayside Community Board that helps increase donations to the winter food drive and encourages neighbours to duke it out for awards.

Between December 1st and December 21st, stop in to The Boathouse Restaurant between 3:00pm and 6:00pm, seven days a week, with a non perishable food item for the Food Bank, and receive a Boathouse “Happy Hour Appy” for free. Yum!

Residents decorate their townhouses and condos to show their holiday spirit, and judging takes place next Tuesday, December 20th. The official judges invite the public to join them on their walking tour of the Quay Promenade and Quayside Drive and participate in the judging. The public can help influence the official judges in their determination of who wins.

Awards include Best Building and Best Building Lobby, and don’t forget the coveted 2nd annual “Clark Griswold” Award. This category was new last year, and has quickly become the category to try to win. This is the award for the most over the top Christmas light display, in true National Lampoons Christmas Vacation Fashion.

So if you know of a balcony, building or lobby that should not be missed by the judges, come down at 5:30 pm to the Boathouse Restaurant on Tuesday, December 20th, 2011 (don’t forget your non-perishable for a free appy) and join the walking tour which starts at 6:30pm sharp.

Help support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society in New Westminster, and join in on the bright fun!
