Enjoy holiday theatre under the stars.


(Stars are weather permitting, of course.) The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort & Spa presents its annual Christmas Starlight Cinema, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6 pm. Admission is free, but donations to Santas Anonymous are appreciated. Bring lawn chairs and blankets; heaters are provided. 3rd — A Christmas Story 4th — White Christmas 10th — The Grinch with Jim Carrey 11th — Home Alone 17th — The Polar Express 18th — It’s a Wonderful Life

Eat out — and give back.


Mealshare, a non-profit new to Victoria, uses a buy one, give one format. When you eat out at a partner restaurant — Zambri’s, West Coast Waffles, Lido Bistro or Canoe Brewpub — and enjoy one of the specially marked menu items, Mealshare donates a meal to those less fortunate. Victoria diners support Our Place and Children’s Hunger Fund in this year-round program.

Make a festive wreath.

Join CRD Parks naturalists at Beaver/Elk lakes for a drop-in, all-ages wreath-making class. Bring your creativity — instructions and supplies will be provided. A suggested $10 donation or canned food will support a local food bank. Bring clippers if you have them, and a mug for hot cider! December 8, 11 am–3 pm, Beaver Lake Nature Centre.
