A light festival is coming to the lower mainland and taking over a public park in Metro Vancouver.

The best part? It’s going to be completely free to attend.

The City of Surrey and Telus are inviting everyone to the Light Festival at Bear Creek Park this fall.

Visitors can experience a mesmerizing show of illuminated trees, eye-catching displays, and sparkling lights throughout an ever-changing garden of colour.

The seven-day festival runs from Sunday, November 4 to Saturday, November 10.

On opening and closing night, guests will be treated to family-friendly activities at a kid’s zone, food trucks, and roving performers. Tuesday, November 6 will feature Diwali-inspired music, food, and performers, as well as a chance to make your own lanterns at the Surrey Art Gallery.

Anyone attending is reminded to bring a flashlight and dress for the weather, as the event will run rain or shine.

The City of Surrey has announced that shuttle service will be available on certain nights of the festival, although full details are yet to be released. Parking is available at the 88th Avenue and 140th Street parking lots, although visitors are advised to take to carpool, walk, or take the shuttle.

Please note: pets are not allowed.
