The Butchart Chronicles : November 16, 2015

The Victoria Royals Skate at The Gardens

Mark your calendars for Sunday, December 6, 2015 when your Victoria Royals visit The Magic of Christmas at The Butchart Gardens.

The Victoria Royals skate at The Butchart Gardens
Yes, much to the surprise of some, we have an ice skating rink. Like the rest of the Magic of Christmas, we started building this in early November and in no time we have a skating rink. Skating is available every day from Tuesday, December 1st until the end of the season on January 6th, 2016.

If you can make it on Sunday, the Royals will be skating on our rink from 3:00-4:30 pm with opportunities for you to skate too (skating fees apply), space permitting.  If you don't have skates, rentals are available at the Visitor Centre. Members of the Victoria Royals will be signing autographs in the Coffee Shop and you can take your photo with them. Admission to The Gardens is required.

As dusk falls its the perfect time to take in the lights as The Gardens light up to show off their Magic of Christmas colours.

Kids, don't forget to make a snowflake at home and bring it in to exchange for a hot chocolate in our Coffee Shop.
