It’s that time of the season again. Christmas Eve, Silent Night, Noel, New Year, Boxing Day and shopping too of course. This year 2010 is the 13th Bright Nights at Stanley Park from Nov. 26, 2010 - January 02, 2011.
The world famous urban park in the downtown Vancouver area is being adorned with Christmas-themed décor—reindeers, Santa, ginger-bread houses, presents, Christmas lights etc.
The miniature train is being transformed into the Bright Nights train rider through a Winter Wonderful with a rainbow of colored lights lighting the surrounding forest. Entry to the park is free with tickets available for train rides and admittance to the Children’s Farmyard.
Away in a manger, no crib for His bed… Choirs will be singing your favorite X’mas hymns and plenty of family fun and entertainment. All for charity and a good cause as well - to raise money for the Fire Fighters' Burn Fund. Christmas and New Year is a time to celebrate and to give, what better way to do it than at this year’s 13th Bright Nights in Stanley Park.
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening… Ho ho ho…
