  1. I would like to understand why there is nothing being done for easy end like you do for the west end. We have to pay taxes just like the west end. Our tree are not light up like the west end and it very unfair for all that live in white rock pay taxes but done life on the wes lot of the city.

  2. Had a lovely time at this event. Did the picture with Santa and my dog, son and grandson, but it never showed up in my email. Wondering if you have a contact for the company that took it as I’d really like to get a copy. I have a pretty exact time that it was taken.

    1. Hi Kim! So glad to hear that you had a good time at Jingle Bell White Rock. The event was organized by the City of White Rock, in partnership with the White Rock BIA and the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce. We’re not sure who booked which talent, but we’d recommend reaching out to the folks at the Chamber first and they were very involved –
