Vancouver Christmas Market {Giveaway}

This morning we went to the opening of the Vancouver Christmas Market.  It's their 5th anniversary and it runs from Nov. 22-Dec.24th.  If there's anything that we love, it's food.   It's an authentic German Christmas Market full of great treats, mulled wine (or apple cider for the kids!) and many small trinkets.




The kids were able to sample candies and kettle corn.


They were also excited to see Christmas decorations.


They tried some poffertjes (mini Dutch pancakes).


They rode the carousel (`I love this Mommy! This is so fun!'.).  

*Note: We went to put Nya on a second time and she was too short so unable to ride the horse.  You need to be 36"*


We tried some hot apple cider which was really, really good.  It was from the Traditional Gluhwein vendor.


The kids had chocolate covered strawberries and cream puffs from `I Love Chocolate'.


And no chocolate was wasted.



Gary tried the Hurricane Potato from Das Kartoffelhaus.



I'm giving away FOUR entries to the Vancouver Christmas Market.  Just enter in the rafflecopter below for your chance to go!  I think it would be a great double date idea....

Love,
The Chapmans

  1. I have always wanted to go, but never have. I have a German background and love the German decorations at Christmas. This is a tradition that I try to keep on my tree! If I win I would probably try to convince Anthony to go with me. We haven't had a date night in a long time and he was gone most of November! So, that is who I would want to spend my time with!
