Seasonal celebrations are sweet in Downtown Langley!

New Gingerbread Walk adds to the festive feel … and chances to WIN

The delicious scent of ginger is adding to the festive feel in Downtown Langley, but it’s the accompanying sights that have everyone talking!

The Downtown Langley Business Association has added to its seasonal celebrations with a Gingerbread Walk – a chance to take in unique creations crafted by local businesses and organizations.

Oh, and there’s the chance for a pretty sweet prize, too: $500 Downtown Dollars!

“We love Christmas here in Downtown Langley. The Gingerbread Walk gives people something they can do with their family and friends that doesn’t necessarily involve spending money – it’s about spending time together,” explains Teri James, DLBA executive director.

With 15 participating locations, Gingerbread stops range from Opus Art Supply to Lemon Bakery, the Douglas Recreation Centre to MLA Mary Polak’s constituency office.

Each business was invited to create what best represented their store, and “I think people will be surprised by the creativity!” James notes. (As a little extra treat for the bakers and decorators, the masterpiece with the most people’s choice votes also wins the maker $500 in Downtown Dollars.)

“It’s a no-stress, do-it-at-your-own-pace Gingerbread Walk.”

Delighting families though Dec. 20, enjoying the Christmas creations is easy!

With your Gingerbread Walk Passport in hand – download your passport here – simply visit each store to view their display and have your passport stamped or initialed. Vote for your favourite entry then submit your completed passport for a chance to win $500 Downtown Dollars.

“It really is that simple. As long as each spot on the passport has been initialed and they’ve voted for their favourite masterpiece, they’re entered to win $500 in Downtown Dollars,” James says. “There’s no purchase necessary – it’s all about people having fun and spending this time together.”

Shop Your Heart Out

Those who do add a little shopping to their Downtown Langley visit can also enjoy the DLBA’s annual Shop Your Heart Out contest.

Running right through Dec. 24, the contest offers the chance to win one of three grand prizes worth $1,000 in Downtown Dollars. In addition, the DLBA will donate another $500 to the Langley charity of your choice.

Simply make a purchase (no minimum required), write your name and phone number on the back of your sales receipt, and pop it in the ballot box to enter the draw!

And don’t forget to share the spirit: Vote for your favourite Langley charity throughout the contest and the two with the most votes will share donations generously provided by participating businesses.
