People take their time to check out the lights as they head down to the Milner Gardens and Woodland’s main house during Milner Christmas Magic. In addition to light displays, the Milner Gardens and Woodland event includes a specialty gingerbread house display, a room full of teddy bears and Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus available for pictures. The event runs Dec. 9-10 and 15-20 from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. — Adam Kveton Photo

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.
