Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park opens for the 2014 holiday season on Saturday, November 29th. A Vancouver tradition that keeps growing, it is also home to the world’s tallest living Christmas tree – a 250 year old Douglas-fir, a beacon of Vancouver’s yuletide season at 46.4m (152 feet) tall.
Holiday fun and entertainment does not begin and end with the tree, however, as the entire park, including the famous suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure and Cliffwalk, is an extravaganza of hundreds of thousands of magical lights. Warm up in the comfort of the new Winter Pavilion. This may be a good opportunity to bring your parents and younger siblings along to partake in scavenger hunts, gingerbread cookie decorating, sing-a-long carols and many opportunities for that perfect annual family holiday photo.
Partial proceeds from admission will be donated to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund with a goal of raising over $25,000. In addition, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park will continue hosting 12 community nights for local charities including Canuck Place, Special Olympics BC, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, North Shore Neighbourhood House, Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, Easter Seals and Kids Up Front.
Canyon Lights runs Saturday, November 29, 2014 to Saturday, January 3, 2015. Park hours are 11:00am – 9:00pm. Canyon Lights tickets are valid all day with holiday activities beginning at 4:00pm.
