Where to find holiday cheer in St. Catharines

Christmas tunes are playing on the radio, hot chocolate and eggnog are being served at cafes and the temperatures are steadily dropping. The holidays are here and for today’s post, the Panoramic Properties’ blog team wants to let our St. Catharines residents know where to find some holiday cheer.


The Pen Centre Mall (221 Glendale Avenue) is just seven minutes away from our Queenston Apartments (349 Queenston) and will be having a photo shoot for pets with Santa on Saturday, December 7th from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m.


The mall will also be hosting a Christmas School Choirfest on Monday, December 9th through Friday, December 13th at the Sears Court from 11:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. More than 600 Niagara area school children will be participating to bring you some holiday cheer. More details for both events and more can be found here.


Kids are invited to take pleasure in some holiday cheer at Fairview Mall, (285 Geneva Street) just ten minutes away from our Westgate Village Apartments (30 Bradmon Drive) for the free kids Christmas craft workshops. Available on Sunday’s, December 1st, 8th, and 15th from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., kids will be able to make some special holiday crafts hosted by Dena Colling Gelentso of Creative Moments.


The holiday season is as much about giving as it is about receiving. This year spread some holiday cheer to kids in need by supporting the “Little Angels” campaign, which runs until December 13th. You can find the names and ages of the “Little Angels” on trees at many city locations. Support your community by donating a new, unwrapped toy to the City of St. Catharines’ 16th annual Tree of Little Angels campaign. For a list of locations, click here.


Toys can be purchased from a number of different stores including Toys R Us (87 Meadowvale Drive), which is located less than ten minutes away from our Westgate Village Townhomes (30 Bradmon Drive).


Panoramic Properties has six distinct rental communities including apartments and townhouse residences available in St. Catharines. To learn more about the different features of each, click here.
