Bright Nights return to Stanley Park as thousands of twinkling lights welcome guests along with carolers, warm treats, dazzling displays and of course the miniature railway.
The Stanley Park Ecology Society will be selling hot buttered popcorn and roasted pistachios as guests are welcome to explore lighted pathways, listen to carolers on the plaza, and have a visit with Santa himself.
Now in its 13th year, Bright Nights supports the British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund. Get rid of your old inefficient Christmas lights by dropping them off at the front gate and BC Hydro will then donate $2 to the Burn Fund for every string collected.
Admission to the plaza is free although a $2 donation to the Burn Fund is recommended for entry. Tickets are required for the Bright Nights Train. The train runs from 3:00pm – 10:00pm nightly and tickets are available in advance through Ticketmaster, either online, by phone, or in person. Read the finer details on the Bright Nights website to see purchase restrictions for certain days. You can also get tickets at the booth on-site however tickets there are only sold for that days’ train rides.
Bright Nights in Stanley Park is on now until January 2nd, 2011 but will be closed on Christmas Day.
