Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm, with lighting display and fireworks between 6:30 and 7:00pm

Bringing together thousands of locals and visitors, the festive and family-friendly celebration will feature the official lighting of the display, fireworks, local choirs singing Christmas carols, hot chocolate and food trucks lining Burrard Street.

Switching on the 100,000 sparkling lights and more than 200 stars that make up the spectacular display, the community celebration marks the beginning of St. Paul’s annual Lights of Hope fundraising campaign which raises funding for the greatest needs of caregivers, patients, residents and loved ones across Providence Health Care’s hospitals and residences. The lights will remain on for the entire holiday season.

This is what over 10km of lights gets you. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The spectacular Lights of Hope.

Since it began in 1998, community donations to Lights of Hope have totalled more than $31 million. Lights of Hope funds directly support sites and programs across Providence Health Care, funding urgently needed equipment, life-saving research, items and services that are essential for patients and residents, and community programs, which would otherwise not be funded through traditional channels.
