Banners, Flower Baskets & Holiday Lights

Fall Banner 2012 126x300It started with a dream of bringing colour and beauty to the streets…

Fall-Banner-2012When the Dunbar Village Business Association (DVBA) was first formed in 2008, our top priority was investing in getting banner hardware, flower basket brackets and electrical outlets installed in all of the light poles in the three commercial districts of Dunbar Village. Although this was initially installed by the City of Vancouver, the DVBA was responsible for the costs.

Flower Baskets: From early June to October, these beautiful hanging baskets are in full bloom. Watering is usually done in the evening so as not to disturb street activity. If you notice that the baskets are particularly droopy, please let us know by email at iThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. FYI, during the hot summer, the baskets are watered every second day.

Banners: Depending on the season, a banner design lasts 2 to 4 years. UV is the cause of a shortened life, so summer banner designs come and go more frequently. We change out the banners in November, January, and August and banner designs are approved by the DVBA board of directors and the City of Vancouver. If you would like the retired banners donated to your community group for a public art project or teaching opportunity, please let us know.

Holiday Lights: Swirls of sparkling LED bulbs light up the dark winter skies and mark the holiday season. Our lights are repaired and re-lamped as needed, so if you see something that needs attention, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
