“What better way to enjoy the holiday than to get active with friends and family. And when you’re not skating, make sure you visit the White Rock Festival of Lights at the Waterfront, take a stroll on Canada’s longest pier or visit the many fabulous shops and restaurants throughout beautiful White Rock.”
