Please note: As recommended by BC’s provincial health officials, gatherings of any kind and unessential travel in the province is not recommended at this time. Please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing and frequent hand washing, and wearing a mask or face-covering in public indoor and retail spaces. If you are sick, please stay home. 

Christmas may have come and gone, but one of Vancouver’s most popular holiday activities is keeping the festive spirit going for just a little while longer.

Glow Gardens announced on Thursday that it’s extending its window of operations and adding several dates throughout the month of January. The event launched in early December and was scheduled to run until early January.

Organizers have decided, however, to continue operating until the end of the month — with new dates available between January 14 to 16, 21 to 23, and 28 to 30.

The decision, according to Glow, was inspired by Mayor Linda Buchanan’s decision to keep holiday displays up in North Vancouver until the end of January.

“We have decided to keep our lights on and Langley’s spirits up for the rest of the month as well.”

The 20-25 minute experience will take place in Langley and will feature “dazzling landscapes” with close to a million lights. The initial event was scheduled to be an outdoor experience at the Greater Vancouver Zoo but has since been changed to create a safer, holiday-friendly experience.

Vehicles participating in the drive-thru will be greeted by elves with mini doughnuts, popcorn, and a souvenir Christmas ornament.

The venue will include a glittering glacial foyer, a 100-foot animated light tunnel, a three-story tree, holiday princesses, and none other than Kris Kringle himself. Not to mention, all guests will receive an additional parting gift to mark their festive experience.

A number of additional safety measures will be in place to ensure that the event remains contactless and that staff are kept safe.
