Christmas in full bloom

West Coast Gardens presents Christmas event Paints 'n Blooms this weekend

West Coast Gardens will present a different Christmas event this Friday and Saturday (Dec. 2 and 3) as a fundraiser in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Paints ‘n Bloom, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at 1420 172 St., will combine the garden site – decked out in its best Christmas colours, including poinsettias and decorations – with work by award-winning artists Audrey Bakewell and Wendy Mould.

“It’s an opportunity to get one of a kind gifts and Christmas decorations, or just to get into the festive mood,” Mould said.

Donations will be collected and a percentage of all art sales will also go directly to the Alzheimer Society, she added.
