Local businesses work together to support Food Bank & celebrate the holidays
Seasonal splendour, and the spirit of giving, has arrived on Main Street in Vancouver as merchants collaboratively celebrate the holidays with hospitality, exciting gift ideas and unique holiday displays. All this while also helping to collect food donations for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
Flake Out on Main Street involves close to 30 different businesses who are all creating their own twist on celebrating the holidays in their respective locations. Shoppers are invited to visit all the participating businesses and vote on their favourite holiday display from December 15 to December 22nd and be eligible to win one of three spectacular prize baskets (each worth around $350).
The draw will occur on December 22nd at Neptoon Records at 3:00pm (3561 Main Street). There will also be food boxes at each of the ballot locations for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
Each participating business has donated a gift certificate or small prize to be included in each of the baskets.
Look for those with blue and white Flake Out on Main Street balloons in their display. Ballots can also be found at participating businesses and at all the ballot box locations: Plush (4296 Main), Bohemia Gallery (3243 Main), Neptoon Records & CDs (3561 Main), Arts off Main (216 East 28th), and On the Fringe Hair Design (4166 Main).
Many businesses will also be open late, until 9pm, on Friday December 22nd to accommodate shoppers and celebrate the holidays.
Come and celebrate Main Street’s favourite holiday tradition and Flake Out on Main Street. Don’t forget to vote for your favourite display!
Arts Off Main is an artist-run gallery in Vancouver, BC offering affordable local art, gifts and framing.
