Having lived in Vancouver nearly my entire life, our family definitely has some set in stone traditions. We are so lucky to live so close to some incredible long-standing Christmas events and many of them are must-see, must-do for our family. For years and years we have made Bright Nights at Stanley Park a tradition and for the past few years, we’ve added in some fun at the Vancouver Aquarium!
If you have lived in Vancouver very long, or even visited over the past few years you’re likely to remember a few big changes to the Vancouver Aquarium. My most fond memory is definitely of the Orca statue that used to reside outside the old aquarium entrance, years and years ago I remember being super excited as a kid to get to splash in the water and toss in coins.
