With five new acres of lights, this year plans to be bigger and better than ever. Stroll with family and friends through the twinkling gardens, and interactive themed areas. Watch the Dancing Light shows on the Lake, the gnome performance (a must if you’ve brought the kids) and a number of new shows premiering at the garden this year.

This year’s sponsor, YVR, has create the ’Jardins de Paris.’ A romantic Parisian getaway in the middle of the Vancouver garden.
