St. Paul’s Hospital Lights of Hope

St. Paul’s Foundation’s light display outside of St. Paul’s Hospital has been an annual tradition and fundraising campaign since 1998. The 4,000 feet of sparkling lights and hundreds of shining stars recognizing the support of generous donors will shine nightly on Burrard Street until January 7, 2022.

As Daily Hive Vancouver explains, “Lights of Hope raises funds for equipment, life-saving research, community programs, and other essential services at St. Paul’s as well as other Providence Health Care hospitals and long-term care homes in BC.”

Bright Nights 2021 at Stanley Park

We love the light display at Stanley Park. The Stanley Park Christmas Train, also called Bright Nights, will be humming along its tracks, and you can experience the magic of millions of twinkling lights in the festive forest. 

Firefighter volunteers set up the Bright Nights display in the plaza, and will be getting donations for the Burn Fund.


Lumagica is described as a “festive light extravaganza”! The experience is highlighted by a 1 km light walk meant to capture the spirit of the holidays. 

“Organizers say that Lumagica includes over 120 features and ornaments, interactive displays, animations, and photo opportunities. There’s also a festive marketplace that will feature live entertainment, warm drinks and tasty treats, and holiday gifts.” - Daily Hive Vancouver

VanDusen Festival of Lights

If you have never visit VanDusen Gardens, now is the time to do so. The entire garden is brightly lit up and is such a sight to see. This year, there’s also a new illuminated rose garden display where the garden stewards used their artistry to “reawaken” the garden. 

We hope you have a chance to enjoy the festive lights, and for those of you with little ones - they'll love it too!
