Make room Santa Claus! Canyon Lights is coming to town!
Vancouver’s family holiday tradition returns for its 10th season!
North Vancouver, BC – This Friday, November 27, 2015 Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park opens for its tenth season. Canyon Lights is proud to be a finalist in the 2015 Canadian Tourism Awards for the Event of the Year.
The suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk and the rainforest transform into a world of festive lights and visual enchantment. New this year – create your own light show with VocaLites, a voice activated interactive light display in the rainforest. Lights illuminate the canyon’s cliff face and Capilano River below. See the world’s tallest living Christmas tree (153 feet tall and still growing!). Go on a kids scavenger hunt, sing-along with the holiday band, decorate gingerbread cookies, create your own Christmas card and take your family holiday photo in the Winter Pavilion.
Partial proceeds from Canyon Lights ticket sales will be donated to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund for fire and burn education in BC schools. To date, Canyon Lights has raised over $192,000 for this worthy program. In addition, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park will continue hosting 12 community nights for local charities including Special Olympics BC, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, North Shore Neighbourhood House, Kids Up Front, Canuck Place, Easter Seals, Ronald McDonald House, Family Services of the North Shore, Harvest Project, Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, Covenant House and North Shore Disability Resource Centre.
Canyon Lights runs Friday, November 27, 2015 to Sunday, January 3, 2016, except on Christmas Day when the park is closed. Park hours are 11:00am – 9:00pm. Canyon Lights tickets are valid all day with holiday activities beginning at 4:00pm. Capilano operates a free shuttle to and from Canada Place.
