Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park rings in the holiday season with a brand new twinkling feature
Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park opens for the 2016 holiday season on Thursday, November 24th. Get into the spirit of the season and be amazed by the hundreds of thousands of lights throughout the park that keep both local residents and visitors from all over the world returning, year after year.
A family favourite holiday tradition, Canyon Lights is excited to unveil a brand new light feature this year. ‘Fireflies’ is an interactive lighting display in the rainforest, ONLY at Capilano. Using magic flashlights, guests can awaken waves of tiny lights that glimmer and twinkle like fireflies.
The suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk, the rainforest and canyon will be transformed into a world of festive lights and dazzling visual enchantment. Lights will illuminate Capilano River and the canyon’s cliff face. See the world’s tallest living Christmas tree (153 feet tall and growing!) and search for the glowing owls in the Snowy Owl Prowl. The holiday fun doesn’t stop there! Visitors are invited to sing-along to carols with the holiday band, decorate gingerbread cookies, make Christmas crafts and take family photos throughout the park.
Canyon Lights will donate partial proceeds from admissions 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 $222,000 for this worthy program. In addition, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park will continue hosting 12 community nights for local charities including Canuck Place, North Shore Disability Resource Centre, Covenant House, North Shore Neighbourhood House, Easter Seals,
Ronald McDonald House, BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund, Family Services of the North Shore, Harvest Project, Special Olympics BC, Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Lower Mainland and Kids Up Front.
