Links: Christmas Lights in the Tri-Cities


Christmas Lights Port Moody Coquitlam 2012

Even though the streets are flooded with the usual post snow puddles, it doesn’t mean you can’t get out and enjoy the Christmas light displays around the Tri-Cities. In years past we’ve usually done a map here, but clearly I’ve been asleep at the switch. Luckily, the Tri-City News clearly were chagrined by our sweet Google Map, and have come out with their own. You’ll find another list at the Coquitlam Now.

The City of Port Moody is going to help you remember what day to throw your recycling out on the curb with a new app for both Apple iOS and Android devices. The app will give you the proper garbage collection info, but will also alert you if your garbage day has changed. You no longer have to rely on seeing what your neighbours put out in the morning. They screw up the stat holidays all the time anyways.

The City of Port Moody has also released their 2013 calendar. Unfortunately it isn’t a spread of the Sexiest Counsellors of Port Moody (I’m looking at you Glumac!), but it does have some great photos of Port Moody’s past and present. You can get your copy at any City facility including the Library and the Rec Centre.

Dandelion Kids in Suter Brook is having a Santa Photo contest. They’re looking for the best Santa photos of your kids or pets. The prize is a pair of Tom’s shoes and the deadline is January 15th. Send your pics to info@dandelionkids.ca

Port Coquitlam is celebrating their centennial in many ways, and one of those involves wine. The Poco Heritage and Cultural Society is teaming with Hester Creek Winery in Oliver to create unique Cabernet Merlot and Pinot Gris blends. You only have until tomorrow to reserve your bottles. Visit pococentennialwine.ca for all the info.

Restaurant time, Robin Leung makes it to The Bombay in Port Coquitlam.

Finally, although this shot was from Ruskin, the CP Holiday Train is a Port Moody holiday favourite. Enjoy.
