Christmas Festival - 2014 Canceled
Please be advised the Lower Lonsdale Christmas Festival run by the LLBA is not scheduled for 2014. We hope to consider expanding this festival when a new Lower Lonsdale Business Improvement Association is formed in the future. In past years this festival has been made possible by the dedicated volunteers of the LLBA and the generous sponsorship contributions from local partners and the City of North Vancouver. If and when and BIA is established in Lower Lonsdale it will provide sustainable funding for the coordination of activities that are involved in creating an event such as this and gathering the sponsorship that it takes to put the event on. Thanks to all those involved over the years!
Lower Lonsdale Enjoyed a wonderful festival in 2013!
