If you’re a resident of Vancouver, there’s a good chance that you’ve never even been to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Okay, maybe once with an out-of-towner relative, or twice because your visiting friend wanted to check it out, or maybe lots of times because you have a locals pass and you love it there. Anyway, we digress..
The holiday season is a bit special for the Capilano Suspension Bridge because they get all gussied up with millions of tiny, sparkling lights to celebrate Canyon Lights. Starting tomorrow (Nov 27), Canyon Lights transforms the Capilano Suspension Bridge park into a winter wonderland that lights up the night with lots of pretty, sparkling things.
If you are a resident of Vancouver, your admission fee to Canyon Lights will cost a staggering $30-40 (to look at Christmas lights!? wtf!?), but if you purchase an admission pas once you should get free access to the attraction for the next year. Also, if you live in North Vancouver in the V7R postal code range, you get unlimited free admission all year round (for putting up with the traffic jams probably).
If you’re looking for a new Christmas tradition, Canyon Lights is a pretty cool thing to check out. It gets you outside (and you can even bring your well-behaved dog!), it’s great for kids, it gets you in the holiday spirit, and you get to see the world’s tallest living Christmas tree (now 153 feet tall and still growing).
It also makes for some pretty awesome Instagram pictures. Worth the price of admission right there!
