Up in the crisp North Shore mountain air, with the aroma of evergreens and a rushing river below, the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park will light up with thousands upon thousands of twinkling lights for the 9th year of Canyon Lights. Featuring the world’s tallest living Christmas tree, a 250 year old Douglas-fir standing at 46.4m (152 feet) tall, Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge offers a festive experience for families from near and far.

Canyon Lights

The entire Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, including the Cliffwalk and the Treetops Adventure, will sparkle amongst the trees. Warm up in the comfort of the new Winter Pavilion with a cup of hot chocolate and a gingerbread cookie, do a scavenger hunt around the historic park, and sing along with carollers.

Canyon Lights will take place Saturday, November 29, 2014 through to Saturday, January 3, 2015. The park will be open from 11:00am to 9:00pm daily with holiday activities from 4:00pm to 9:00pm. Closed on Christmas Day, December 25th. Admission is $65.00 for a family (two adults, two children – includes memberships for BC residents) or $32.95 for adults, $12.00 for children (6-12).

Partial proceeds from admission will be donated to the BC Professional Fire Fightersโ€™ Burn Fund. Capilano Bridge will also continue hosting its Twelve Nights of Christmas for local charities including Canuck Place, Special Olympics BC, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, North Shore Neighbourhood House, Easter Seals and Kids Up Front.
