One of Metro Vancouver’s most awe-inspiring attractions, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, will once again shine brightly this holiday season as the dazzling Canyon Lights returns to delight locals and visitors of all ages.
Considered one of the world’s most spectacular holiday light displays, Canyon Lights features thousands of twinkling lights adorning the iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge, as well as the exciting Treetops Adventure walk and its 250-year-old Douglas firs.
In fact, with those majestic firs draped in lights, those enduring trees become the eight tallest Christmas trees in the world.
While you may make only one round-trip and heart-pounding journey on the illuminated bridge crossing the canyon, there is plenty to do for everyone, including strolling through the many light displays, stopping for cookies and hot chocolate, shopping in the store, enjoying live music, and keeping little ones busy with all sorts of activities.
Partial proceeds from admissions are donated to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund for fire and burn education in schools throughout British Columbia. To date, Canyon Lights has donated over $346,000 to this worthy program. Admissions also allow for Capilano to continue to host the Twelve Nights of Christmas offering passes for local charities.
