Over 3 million lights will dazzle Stanley Park visitors starting this month

Nov 12 2019, 1:35 pm

One of Metro Vancouver’s most magical Christmas light displays will once again open to the public for the holiday season beginning this month, as Bright Nights at Stanley Park returns for another season.

Beginning on November 28, over three million dazzling lights will decorate acres of the dark forest, reaching as high as the forest canopy for all to see and enjoy.

The attraction in the heart of the park is also accompanied by a train ride, music, snacks, entertainment, and even visits with Santa and his elves.

The annual tradition, now in its 22nd year, is operated and installed by 800 firefighters – a task that requires 8,000 hours of set-up over three months.

Bright Nights attracts 200,000 visitors every year, with all proceeds benefiting the Burn Fund, which provides life-saving, life-supporting, and life-enriching services to people in BC.
