During the holiday season, the Bright Nights Christmas Train and Stanley Park Train Plaza sparkle with three million twinkling lights.
Buy tickets to ride the Bright Nights Train and experience the lights, breathtaking displays, and live performers along the train route. Or view the displays at the Train Plaza by donation ($5.00 suggested).
Your donations at the front gate and a portion of ticket sales go to the BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund. $1.4 million has been raised to help burn survivors and their families since 1998.
Bright Nights is located on Pipeline Road in Stanley Park, via the West Georgia Street park entrance.
