Celebrate Port Moody's Cheer at the Pier — from your car

Fourth annual event has a new look because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cheer at the Pier
Port Moody's Cheer at the Pier, scheduled for Nov. 28, will have a new look this year to keep people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

There won’t be any cheer at the pier in Port Moody’s Rocky Point Park this Christmas season but the holiday spirit will carry on.

The fourth annual Holiday Cheer at the Pier, scheduled for Nov. 28, has been reimagined because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Instead of a community outdoor celebration, the city along, with its fire and police departments, are launching the Christmas season with a special drive-thru toy drive from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. that day.

New, unwrapped toys or non-perishable food items will be collected from the trunks of vehicles as they roll through a drop-off zone in the parking lot at Rocky Point Park.

The zone will give occupants a front- and back-seat view of the park’s holiday light display along the wooden pier — complete with dancing elves, a giant polar bear, Frosty and Rudolph as well as a socially distant wave from Santa Claus. 

Visitors can also leave their donation on a covered table at the drop-off zone, but if you do get out of your car, you’re asked to wear a face mask and leave space for others.

If you can’t make it to the drive-thru event, donations can be dropped off at the Inlet Centre fire hall at 150 Newport Dr., or the police station at 3051 St. Johns St., during regular business hours.

All toys collected go to Share Family and Community Services.
