The Canyon of Lights is a go for this year and that means so much to so many families here on the lower mainland who love to go every year with their family as a Christmas tradition. It is a beautiful display every year and this year is already selling out fast! That is right, due to COVID and limited capacity they will be asking you to book in advance this year. From Tuesday, December 1, 2020 and runs until Sunday, January 3, 2021 (closed December 25) you can book your family in for a time frame perfect for your household.
What can you do at Canyon of Lights this year??
Cross the glowing suspension bridge, with the canyon and Capilano River illuminated with lights below, journey into the magical rainforest and walk high above the forest floor between the eight tallest Christmas trees in the world on Treetops Adventure. The mesmerizing “Arc de Lumina” light tunnel returns on Cliffwalk for that perfect Instagram moment. Kids of all ages can explore the Park in search of lit snowy owls in a scavenger hunt with weekly prizes to be won! So keep those little eyes on the skies and make sure you can find all those owls, you might just win another experience that you can pay forward or keep for yourself!
Their best advice?
Tickets and annual passes must be purchased in advance online. There will be a limited quantity of tickets available each night for designated entry times, to limit contact upon entry and reduce capacity. All ticket sales are final. BC annual pass holders will also be required to reserve their time online prior to their visit. Book early to avoid disappointment. The first phase of tickets and timed entry bookings will go on sale here on Tuesday, November 3.
For a pre-opening special, a family pass for two adults and two children (up to age 16) will be offered for $115 and includes annual passes for those from BC. The family pass rate increases to $125 in December. Face masks or coverings will be required in the Park during your visit to help keep everyone safe. Disposable masks can be purchased by donation to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund for those without one, or in case you just want to support. For further information on this policy and their COVID – 19 safety measures, please visit here.
BONUS partial proceeds from all admissions will be 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 $381,000 to this worthy program and we want to make sure that this year is just as successful!
Also if you are a family like ours, who doesn’t drive, they are still going to be holding their Free Shuttle service from Canada Place which is amazing news. It would be such a long transit trip all the way from Burnaby for our family if they didn’t provide that amazing service and I thank them every year for it. So make sure to snag your tickets fast if you are planning to head there this year for Canyon of Lights, don’t miss out on your chance at an amazing family tradition here in Vancouver.
