  • Christmas Market
    When does it officially become Christmastime? For Vancouverites, it's actually in late November, when the scents of mulled wine and gingerbread and the sounds of bells and trumpets fill the crisp air. It's a time when the eyes widen at the sight of little wooden huts decked out in twinkling white lights and pine branches, of a sparkling carousel pirouetting in the night. This is the Vancouver Christmas Market. In founding this beloved wintertime utopia, Malte Kluetz brings a 700-year-old tradition from the streets of his native Hamelin, Germany, to the plaza of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. German Christmas markets are a staple of European holiday seasons, and over the past few years, the Vancouver market has become a similarly un-missable destination for locals. Here, a forests' worth of light-spangled pine trees and wreaths crowd the plaza, joining 45 wooden huts in which craftspeople and chefs?many from Germany themselves?share their handiwork. Shoppers peruse hand-carved nutcrackers and ornaments, and at any given moment of the day or night, the music of carolers, a string trio, or a jazz band might warm chilly ears. After a hug from the market's gingerbread mascots, children might go on a scavenger hunt, decorate candles, or head to the old-fashioned Christmas carousel, encrusted with hundreds of amber lights, to show parents just how good they would be at riding a pony if they had their own. When they're done, kids and their parents head off in search of herbed Bavarian bratwursts, pastries, bubbly German wheat beers, and inky, sweetly spiced gluhwein. Like any good Christmas market, the Vancouver market's festivities are anchored by a massive tree. At its pinnacle sits a glowing star?a beacon signaling the arrival of the holiday season.

  • Photography by Marlow
    Robert Marlow has navigated the rapid evolution of photographic art since 1981. He specializes in straightforward studio and beach photography for families, capturing images "that people will want to use" with his simple, modern aesthetics and eye for classical composition and lighting. Making his subjects feel at ease, he draws out natural expressions that highlight their personalities through varying sessions, resulting in images of fun and goofy families, a newly engaged couple's tender embrace, or a tasteful close-up of Dad's baby bump. In 2007, he hired on photographer Heather Jean, who supplements Robert's skill with families and children with a dynamic take on actors' headshots and modelling photography.

  • Vernon Creativity Centre
    Kids love building things almost as much as they love destroying things. A stack of blocks is a crash waiting to happen, just as cupcake batter is an aerial missile waiting on a mold. Herein lies the genius of Legos: kids may build, then they must disassemble––funneling children's capacity for creativity. Bricks 4 Kidz organizes this interlocking rise and fall of Lego bricks with diverse programs and events. Whether it's an afterschool, pre-school, or in-school program, they help kids trigger their imagination with not just Legos, but with stories and learning opportunities. Special themed bricks cast kids into outer space or onto the sets of their favorite movies and video games. For more advanced activities, kids can create stop-motion animation or junior robots.

  • On Location
    Portrait photography arguably depends most on the art of being unobtrusive. Award-winning photographer Devin Card learned this more than 12 years ago, when his photographic adventures across the globe taught him to adopt a more naturalistic approach to his craft that yielded stunning images from moments he allowed to unfold organically. Today, Devin continues to employ the lessons of his travels, blending into the background at weddings and other celebratory events, which often puts his subjects so much at ease they almost forget a camera is present. His uncanny knack for being in the right place at the right time for a shot has not gone unnoticed by former clients, who praise his work for showing off “many different personalities” and “capturing a story” worth remembering. Though he specializes in portraiture and wedding photography, Devin also lends his skills to businesses and animals looking to update their online dating profiles. When he isn’t crouching behind chair aisles and tiered cakes to snap creative photos at weddings, Devin travels throughout central Victoria for on-location shoots. Some of his favourite photogenic locations include the flowery gardens of Beacon Hill Park, the lively streets of downtown, and Ogden Point Breakwater, whose famously shy lighthouse blushes red in the background of sunset shots.

  • We Care Dog Daycare
    Like many dog owners in a two-worker household, Russell Simpson had to figure out how to best take care of his chocolate labrador, Riley, when no one was home. A growing pup with lots of energy, Riley soon left the house torn apart and riddled with evidence of poker parties. Then Simpson took his dog to daycare and something miraculous happened: Riley started coming home content, relaxed, and manageable. But even with this improvement in Riley's behaviour, Simpson couldn't help but look around his dog's daycare and see an opportunity to make it even better. So he found a warehouse and applied his construction skills to a redesign. Today, Simpson and his team—along with Riley and regulars such as Lucy—welcome clients and their four-legged friends to We Care Dog Daycare. Together they elevate the dog-daycare experience by rotating the dogs hourly—while some play indoors, the others are taken out on walks, which are included as standard. They also offer owners premium services, such as taking active dogs out on two-hour adventure hikes, or older dogs out on one-hour leisure walks. Further services include grooming, a dog taxi, and training with an accredited dog trainer. We Care's staff also runs a dog-of-the-month program, which recognizes especially well-behaved dogs with rewards such as an adventure walk or a five-album record deal.

  • Jet Pet Resort Inc
    Tiny nails skitter across dark hardwood floors as pets enter Jet Pet Resort. The high ceilings glitter with chandeliers in this pet resort, where every detail is designed to subvert human owners’ Subverting expectations of its industrial converted warehouse setting. The staff here hosts its four-legged charges in luxe suites of varying sizes, reminiscent of traditional hotels, save for the dog-sized, sheepskin-covered beds. Some of the rooms are large enough for a private television and in-room webcam to allow pet parents to keep an eye on their pup while vacationing. The doggy suites feature large picture windows that overlook the indoor play yard, made to resemble a small-town park, complete with man-made trees and a grass-colored floor. Both day care and overnight guests can cavort in this indoor playground. Pups can also venture outdoors,, where they can weave around shrubbery and clamber up platforms. Staff is on-hand day and night to toss balls into the air or determine whether dogs actually do dream about running all night long. Every aspect of a dog’s stay is carefully curated to ensure comfort while pups are away from home. The kitchen staff crafts custom meals for pups. The resort’s spa treatments let pups chase away the day’s stress with a massage or soothing bath. The staff can also accommodate feline companions, housing them in their own separate wing.
