One of the more impressive displays of Christmas lights has been strung up around the VanDusen Botanical Gardens for the Festival of Lights. Over a million lights have been placed to bring joy and wonder to the gardens with activities the whole family can enjoy.
A break in the stormy weather that rolled over Metro Vancouver during the last week offered somewhat dry, yet windy opportunity to make my first visit to the Festival of Lights. Although I’ve been in VanDusen before, seeing it transformed with the brilliant displays after dark is just that more magical. Of course, I had my camera with me and many of the pictures I took are available on Gallery.
The Festival of Lights runs until December 31st, 2015. Tickets can be purchased in person or in advance online through the VanDusen Botanical Gardens web site. Tickets purchased are also good for Enchanted Nights at Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park.
