Trees and treats

Wow, it’s December! Only 24 shopping days until Christmas—have you managed to get yours done (or started) yet? Well maybe this will help. If you’re a regular reader of Downtown Peggy, you already know about our Pledge to Shop Downtown for the Holidays. Well this week we’re kicking it up a notch and offering some more great prizes.

On Friday, we’re giving away a $100 gift certificate to Portage Place! So become a Facebook fan here and recommend this page to your friends. Then leave a comment on the Pledge wall telling me you did it. It’s that easy! Over the next couple of weeks I’ll also be giving away gift certificates to Mountain Equipment Co-op, Shops of Winnipeg Square, The Forks Market and Riverstone Spa.

You don’t want to miss out!


The Festival of Trees and Lights is currently underway at Manitoba Hydro Place. There are dozens of gorgeous trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses to look at, and you can enter to win one of your very own. Each tree comes with a whack of awesome prizes as well.

Also, don’t miss your chance for a girls night during Divas Downtown, happening on Thursday at the Festival. And finally, they’ve got a great family activity happening on Friday night when actor John Huston does a reading of Dickens’ Christmas Carol.

Here are a few images from the Festival. Hope to see you there!

  1. I go to many of the above mentioned locations, but you’ve added a few new ones to my list. Thank you, especially love the idea of getting stocking stuffers at Sweetz!!
