Kick off your holiday season with a free series of weekend music performances at City Hall, all set to a backdrop of 30 creatively decorated Christmas trees. The 19th annual Winter Wonderland presented by the Rotary Club of Richmond Sunset is a celebration of the sights and sounds of the holiday season.

Each tree at Winter Wonderland is sponsored and has been uniquely decorated by local businesses, organizations or individuals. Visitors stopping by to enjoy the performances and festive display are encouraged to vote for their favourite trees, bring along a non-perishable food item to drop-off in support of Richmond's local food bank and make an additional donation. Funds generated from the donations will be used to support the Rotary Club's international and Richmond community programs.

Winter Wonderland will have its official opening ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 12:30 p.m. with additional Saturday music performances through to mid-December. The weekly performance schedule is as follows:
