We’re past the Christmas and New Year holiday season now, but the Town of View Royal wanted to acknowledge the hard work of residents and businesses who lit up around the neighbourhoods in December.

Last month, View Royal residents were encouraged to Light Up View Royal by decorating their homes and businesses for a chance to win a special prize delivered by members of Council.

550 Prince Robert DrHeard about it and drove by to see for myself WOW. It’s extremely festive & obviously took a lot of creativity to make some of the hand made characters!

The family at 550 Prince Robert Drive work hard on putting their Christmas display together. Many of the decorations are homemade! My friends and I feel so Christmassy when we walk by this display. It’s awesome!
194 Werra RdClassic Christmas done right! Holiday movies every night on the big screen and tons of lights! So unique, has a large film screen, plays Christmas shows/movies, Also a large variety of decorations from vintage to new!
