Canyon Lights with Capilano Suspension Bridge

Capilano Suspension Bridge’s annual Canyon Lights event beings December 4th and will run 5:00pm to 9:00pm every day (except Christmas Day) until January 2, 2010.

This unique chance to see the Bridge, Canyon, and Treetop adventure illuminated at night by 250,000 LED holiday lights is a treat.

There will also be far more than lights to see as they will also have glass-blowing with local artist Malcolm MacFadyen, gingerbread cookie decorating, Kid’s Corner, and a live holiday band. Proceeds from admission fees will be donated to the Burn Fund as well, with a goal of $20,000 for the cause.

I have been given two prize packs to give away. These each include: 4 Canyon Lights passes and 2 complimentary Icicle Glass Blowing workshops each with Malcolm MacFayden. The prize is redeemable between December 4th, 2009 and January 2nd, 2010 at the park and the value of each package is $100.

To enter to win one of the two prize packs (which could make great Christmas gifts) simply leave a comment below or re-tweet this link, including @miss604 and @capsuspbridge on Twitter. I’ll draw the winner on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009 so that you can gear up to use your prize pack any time this season.

Update: My first winner from Twitter is Cameron McConnochie, congratulations! I’ll draw the other winner later tonight.

Update: My second winner is Tina (from the comments section), congratulations!
