We are delighted to bring to our Community the 4th installment of Window Wanderland in James Bay. This community celebration is brought to you by the James Bay Community Centre and James Bay New Horizons, funding for the event was made possible by a celebration grant from the City of Victoria.
James Bay Window Wanderland 2022 will be happening on the weekend of Feb 25, 26,27 from 6:00-9:00pm.
Everyone in James Bay is invited to decorate a window You can make a display in the windows of your home, apartment, business, car, and high rise. Taking part is free! This inclusive event brings out the artist in all of us. February in Victoria can be dreary and we all need a little more light to brighten our spirits at this time of year. These individual windows across the town will transform our streets into dazzling galleries and the beauty of James Bay’s unique community spirit will be showcased and ablaze for all to see.
The event is a great way to engage with your neighbors, or get the entire family working on a project together. Get involved, be creative, be noticed, the materials you can use are unlimited!
No matter how small or large your street facing window, door or garden, let’s brighten James Bay with this unique and wonderful feel-good event! Anyone can take part, regardless of age and almost anything can count as a display: from a string of fairy lights to a live band playing in your front room. As long as it is family friendly, anything goes! No fancy lights needed, just a normal room light or lamp will bring your display to life.
