for a one-night Christmas pop-up, in the heart of Yaletown. On Saturday, December 19

Kiss-in at 5pm under the mistletoe
WHERE: The corner of Mainland and Davie Street (just behind the Canada Line station)
Yaletown Kissmas is the perfect place for revelers to show their love under the mistletoe. Yaletown will be alive with public displays of affection as attendees get their smooch on in front of the Kiss Camera (and of course, selfies are welcome). Guests can also try their luck in the Yaletown Kissmas Money Booth for a chance to walk away with a variety of great prizes.
Groove along to the tunes mixed by a live DJ from KiSS Radio while strolling through the twinkling outdoor pop-up. Check some items off the holiday gift list and #buylocal from the bevy of Yaletown merchants. Warm up with hot apple cider or cocoa and enjoy the fun and festive atmosphere. As a special gift, the first 100 guests to participate in the kiss-in at 5pm will receive a special Kissmas swag bag full of free vouchers and gift cards for select Yaletown businesses.
HOW: The Yaletown Kissmas outdoor event is free to attend and is hosted for one night only. Join in on Saturday, December 19 from 4-7pm to celebrate the season and share your love with those near and dear.
Don’t forget to take a photo with loved ones under the mistletoe. Pets, kids, pals and even your mom deserve a smooch. The best kiss will win an overnight stay at Yaletown’s renowned OPUS Hotel Vancouver
