Enjoy the magic of the holidays! From now until January 2, 2012, the Vancouver Park Board and British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund welcome guests to come and experience the 14th annual Bright Nights in Stanley Park.


The Plaza area of Stanley Park has been completely transformed with two million twinkling lights, animated displays, holiday theme characters, music and carolers.

There is hot chocolate, popcorn and roasted chestnuts. Admission to the Plaza is by donation to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.

The miniature train in Stanley Park is also in full holiday operation. Tickets for the train are available in advance online or at the ticket booth in the train Plaza in Stanley Park.

All donations and proceeds from the miniature train ticket sales go to the Burn Fund, helping burn survivors and their families. To date, Bright Nights has raised over $1.5 million for the Burn Fund.
