During the holiday season, the Bright Nights Train and Plaza at Stanley Park sparkles with three million twinkling lights, decorating the darkness that comes early at this time of year. Kids of all ages will be singing along to their favourite carols as they take in the whimsical displays along the route.

Due to COVID a few changes have been made for the 2021 Bright Nights experience – the big one being Santa won’t be visiting this year. Currently masks are encouraged for everyone over the age of 3. Vaccinate cards are not currently required; if this changes the organizer will inform ticket holders.

There will be one train every 20 minutes with limited tickets per train. The last train is scheduled for 9:40pm.

Ticket holders must board the train at the time specified on their tickets due to restrictions on capacity. Latecomers may not be accommodated.

Tickets are only sold online this year.
