A dazzling light display known as the Garden Light Festival will light up Surrey’s Bear Creek Park this week.
Taking place on Wednesday and Thursday (November 8 and 9), the event will see trees and trails in the popular park lit up with a vast array of ever-changing colours.
There will be onsite activities and events to enjoy as well, including lantern making, face painting, a photo booth, and – for those hungry visitors – food trucks will be on site as well.
Those who attend are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring a flashlight.
There will also be pre-festival activities at the Surrey Art Gallery as well.
Visitors can also make a giant swordfern and floating seedball lanterns with mentoring artist Tamara Unroe from 4 to 5 pm on both of nights. After the workshops, people can try them out at the festival.
The event – one of many across the region that’s helping kick things into holiday mode – is free for the whole family and everyone is encouraged to attend.
When: Wednesday and Thursday, November 8 and 9
Time: 5 to 8 pm
Where: Bear Creek Park – 13750 88 Avenue, Surrey
