During December, VanDusen Botanical Garden is decorated with hundreds of thousands of lights for the Festival of Lights. Enjoy the twinkling lights and light show, take a stroll down Candy Cane Lane, hear the sweet sounds of carolling, and get in to the spirit of the season. Santa is available for photos from 5pm – 8:45pm each evening. There are plenty of activities planned: interactive icebergs on Livingstone Lake; Gingerbread Wood; Candy Cane Express model train; Sparking Spruce; community choirs and so much more! This is an incredibly popular event, so it is advisable to buy tickets in advance.
All admission tickets include 1 FREE ride on the carousel.
New for 2018: Families, kids, and couples alike can take photos with Santa in the Visitor Centre halls until December 24. This is now a free experience included with entry.
