Our Bright Nights train will once again be sounding its whistle and chugging through the sparkling magically-lit forest of Stanley Park this Christmas. Kids of all ages will be singing along to their favourite carols as they take in the whimsical displays along their ride.
We're excited to welcome you back to a nostalgic and cherished family event that has helped to create many Christmas memories. As our very first in-person special event since Bright Nights 2019, we're prioritizing the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers and focusing our efforts on making sure the train will be a fun, happy, and safe experience. Though Santa is still on hiatus and the North Pole will not be open, our plaza will feature selected iconic light elements and the train ride will once again sparkle and dazzle as in years past.
