Lots to see at Milner Christmas Magic in Qualicum Beach

Milner Gardens and Woodland has its Milner Christmas Magic event running in the lead up to Christmas.

The annual seasonal event features impressive light displays (some by the Mid Island Floral Art Club), gingerbread houses (by Vancouver Island University students), a room full of teddy bears (care to guess how many?), music, refreshments, and, of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Here’s some of what the NEWS saw the evening of Dec. 8 at the event. It continues Sunday evening, Dec. 10, and Dec. 15-20 from 5 p.m.-8:30 p.m. (with the last entry at 8 p.m.). Cost of entry is $5 for adults, $2.50 for children, or $12 for a family of two adults and up to three kids.
