It’s a natural wonderland throughout the year, but at Christmas, this place really shines. Capilano Suspension Bridge, known worldwide for its famous heights, is all decked out for the season. The Canyon Lights display, which has over 250,000 lights throughout, is a great place for families. Running until Jan 2, an evening here can also include a visit with glass blower Malcolm McFadyen, live music from the “Holiday Band”, hot chocolate, gingerbread and more. Funds collected go to support the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.
