Bright Nights in Stanley Park light up the park starting tonight and running until January 2, 2012. It’s the 14th annual event that sees millions of lights decorate the park and the miniature railway.
View animated displays, listing to holiday music, enjoy hot chocolate, and try the fresh popcorn and roasted chestnuts from the Stanley Park Ecology Society. Santa will also be on-hand for visits.
Stop by daily from 3:00pm until 10:00pm and stay until 11:00pm on Fridays and Saturday. Bright Nights will just be closed on Christmas Day. You can park at the miniature railway lot, take the #19 bus into the park, or walk in from downtown.
Admission is by donation to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund and train tickets are $9 (adults) and $6 (children and youth). You can purchase train tickets ahead of time online or by calling 1-855-985-5000.
