Storybook Village turns on lights of delight

Tiny cottages transformed with holiday light display beginning Dec. 7

Individually, the houses of Storybook Village at Qualicum Commons are small.

Together, they’ll make a big impression when the staff of Oceanside Building Learning Together fill them with festive, holiday window displays from Dec. 7 through Jan. 5.

The roadways of Storybook Village are open year-round for children and families to stroll or ride bikes and trikes around the village. Over the holidays, the windows of the houses will be dressed with seasonal decorations to make the trip through the village that much more magical.

So bundle up, grab your helmet and head to Storybook Village, meet friends and enjoy what Building Learning Together staff and volunteers have done to bring the festive spirit to Storybook Village.

Storybook Village is located on the grounds of Qualicum Beach Commons, 744 Primrose Avenue, in Qualicum Beach. It is operated by Building Learning with community support, including School District 69 and The Rotary Club Sunrise.
