Bright Nights at Stanley Park
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.
Ride the train
Several trains depart during each half-hour time slot.
Line up at the start of your time slot for shorter waits.
For example, if your time slot is 7pm – 7:30pm, arrive at 7pm and join the line for your time slot. You’ll board a train by 7:30pm. All aboard!
