For 2022 the holidays are back in full swing and I think that everyone can feel the excitement. Things might be tough right now for a lot of families but so many of us are eager to have a holiday of magic. Metropolis at Metrotown here in Burnaby is so happy to help bring that to many families this holiday season in more ways than one.
Live Musical Performances
This holiday season, Metropolis at Metrotown also has a captivating schedule of festive performances, including a family-friendly lineup of magic acts, circus performances, and musical genres. Ranging from holiday quartets and brass trios to saxophone and Latin Christmas guitar. The schedule of performances will be available on our Events page: HERE; throughout the week and it will be updated frequently.

With a backdrop of snow and icebergs, Santa’s Winter Wonderland is the perfect place for parents to capture their children’s precious moments. Professional photos are available for a $10 donation. This year’s innovation allows families to avoid lengthy wait times and shop with ease and convenience. Photos can now be reserved in advance online.

Toy Drive & Gift Wrap
Along with a toy drive (December 2–4), Metrotown will also offer gift wrapping for a donation starting on December 1 in conjunction with the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society. Nothing helps families in need more during the holidays than brand new toys at a toy drive. Being brought up on welfare and a very low income family we often relied on hampers each year for our gifts. So without programs like these kids like me would have gone without any Christmas at all and that hurts my heart. So thankful for anything you can donate to the cause, because it is an important one to me that’s for sure.
There are so many great stores moving into the Metrotown family and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Vessi, a well-known Vancouver-born retailer of waterproof shoes, Daiso, a Japanese variety discount store, and OVO, the new clothing line from Toronto rapper Drake, which debuted its second Vancouver location at Metropolis at Metrotown in the fall, are just a few of the well-liked new additions to the mall’s 330+ shops.
There is nothing easier than holiday shopping at Metropolis during the holidays. They do everything they can to make shopping easy, all in one spot and feeds the community in a positive way. Thank you so much Metrotown for all that you do!
