Team Kerr’s Favourite Holiday Light Displays in Vancouver

  • Team Kerr’s Favourite Holiday Light Displays in Vancouver

    Christmas and the holiday season are right around the corner, and viewing holiday light displays has been a longstanding seasonal tradition.   Whether you are driving around looking at homes and neighbourhoods or enjoying more commercial displays, this is a great way to explore Vancouver.  As you continue the house shopping with your real estate agents at Team Kerr, take some time this holiday season to enjoy the city you call home – or will be calling home.  The city has countless festivities to help spread holiday cheer, but many locals will agree that some of the best are our holiday light displays. Many places around Vancouver go all-in for the holiday season, but below are three of our favourite annual Christmas light displays.

    Bright Nights in Stanley Park

    Stanley Park Bright Nights Train

    Bright Nights Train – come experience the lights, breathtaking displays, and live performers along the train route.

    Stanley Park is a Vancouver staple and a must-visit destination no matter the time of year.  During the holiday season, though, this beautiful green space becomes extra special. The Bright Nights Christmas Train and Stanley Park Train Plaza get transformed into a holiday wonderland, complete with millions of bright lights.  The train ride is perfect for the kids, and the light displays are enough to turn even the biggest Scrooge into a holiday fanatic.

    Similar to Stanley Park, VanDusen Botanical Garden is a beautiful spot to visit year round but really pulls out all the stops over the holidays.  Their Festival of Lights is the longest running holiday tradition in the city. With over one million lights illuminating the 15+ acre gardens, this display has become increasingly popular over the past few years.  Whether you are looking for a family outing, romantic date, or a place to catch your breath from the multi-faceted home-buying process, the VanDusen Botanical Garden this winter is the place to be.
