Grab a cup of hot chocolate and explore beautiful VanDusen Botanical Garden during the 32nd annual Festival of Lights (FOL), Vancouver’s premier and longest running holiday event.
More than 15 acres of the Garden will be decorated with one million lights. The event includes the Dancing Lights show on Livingstone Lake, roving Scandinavian gnomes, music, tasty treats and drinks, Santa, and new this year, a holiday carousel. A ride on the carousel is included in every event admission.
Garden visitors can also experience the romance of Paris right here in Vancouver! Stop by the Eiffel Tower to take a selfie under the dazzling lights and share on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #JardinsDeParis for a chance to win two economy tickets to Paris, courtesy of Air France and YVR.
There is also a photo contest this year. Visitors can use #VanDusenFOL and post event photos on Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win prizes, including a one-year membership to VanDusen Garden.
