The Christmas countdown in Vancouver is on and if you’re planning to attend the highly anticipated Aurora Winter Festival, tickets will soon be on sale.

Daily Hive readers will be able to access tickets one day before they go on sale to the general public.

The Daily Hive presale begins at 10 am on Thursday, October 4, and will last 12 hours (ending at 10 pm).

The presale code is DailyHiveAurora (all one word). General ticket sales begin on Friday, October 5, at 10 am. Tickets are available to purchase on the Aurora Winter Festival website.

The massive event will be taking place from November 23 to December 30 at Concord Pacific Place in Vancouver.

When guests arrive at the Aurora Winter Festival, they will be transported to a true North Pole experience.

Visitors will be able to journey through the mystical worlds which are made up of four uniquely inspired regions that vary in style, texture, sound, and colours.
