December Family Events

The holiday season in Delta is underway with trees and decorations lighting up the communities. Here's a list of some family friendly activities and events happening this December.

Family Friendly Activities

Drop in at one of Delta’s ice rinks, like at the Sungod Recreation Centre, for a fun afternoon of ice skating with the family. Finish off the day of family fun with a warm cup of hot chocolate from your favourite local coffee shop (here’s a link to some local favourites).


Living in beautiful Delta BC means exploring outdoors is possible nearly all year long. Bundle up with your loved ones for a crisp winter walk along one of the many walking trails, and bring your binoculars to investigate the winter wildlife. For som winter birding, check out the Exploring Eagles At Deas Island Regional Park event happening December 4th.


Why not shop local for your christmas gifts this year? Delta is home to many local shops with perfect gifts to fill your Christmas shopping needs. Bring the family for a day in historic Ladner as you shop, or visit the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall for one-stop shopping. Check out our holiday shopping itineraries for information about some of our favourite local spots in each community.
