Typically, between 160 and 200 volunteers are needed, festival president Liv Butow said in a news release, “both for the days leading up to the event as well as on the festival day.”

“We have a great organizing team, but it would be great to make the work load a bit lighter for them,” Butow said.

For information on volunteering, or for more about the festival itself, visit www.christmasonthepeninsula.com or call 604-542-3776.
