Shine, Shop & Dine Trolley Tour
4:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This festive season it is the West End’s turn to shine. In support of the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation, the West End BIA and Robson Street are joining forces to kick off the holiday season in style with the Shine, Shop and Dine Trolley Tour. Anchored by the St. Paul’s Lights of Hope, residents and visitors alike can hop aboard the free trolleys from any of one 12 sites on Saturdays from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. from November 23 to December 21.
For five consecutive Saturdays, Shine, Shop & Dine will highlight the amazing work of St. Paul’s Hospital and the wonderful variety of shopping and dining found in the West End. Running at 10 minute intervals, three trolleys will take passengers on an animated hop on/hop off tour following the historic trolley routes along Davie, Denman, Robson and Burrard Streets. Decorative lighting displays will be set up around the route for passengers to enjoy as part of their holiday experience. Who knows, a few regular West End personalities might just sashay by or a sing a tune for you.
Additionally, this event is a fundraiser for the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation’s Lights of Hope, an annual fundraising campaign to support St. Paul’s Hospital. Donations help support the hospital’s “greatest needs,” enabling them to meet urgent needs for equipment, research and enhanced patient care, when and where they arise.
