The most iconic showing of holiday lights in Vancouver is coming back soon and it officially kicks off the start of the most magical season of the year. The St Paul's holiday Lights of Hope will magically illuminate the historic hospital and everyone's invited to the kickoff. On Thursday, November 14 the lights will be officially switched on for the season and they're celebrating with a huge party including fireworks.\nYou can watch more than 100,000 lights illuminate the night while fireworks pop off and choirs sing Christmas songs. There will also be a ton of food trucks around so you can make a whole night of it and start getting those warm, fuzzy holiday feels.\nBrand new this year is a unique "Living Light" display that actually illuminates when people donate to the foundation and starts to dim when donations dwindle. You can pick a donation amount and tap your card to help.\nThis event has become a classic holiday tradition in Vancouver and the entire city will be lit up in support on November 14. BC Place, Science World and Telus Garden will also be shining brightly that night.\nWhile there are a ton of amazing holiday light displays in the city, this one will make you feel good because you're helping to give back to the community.\nView this post on Instagram Lights of Hope 2018 🎆 .

It's a small price to pay considering how magical it all is.\nView this post on Instagram #Throwback photo from few years back on my 23rd birthday but I want to wish everyone a #HappyThanksgiving to all my loved ones, friends & the many families out there - hope you all have an amazing 🦃 🥘 lovely day! #superblessed #thankful #motivationalmonday #family #friends #love #inspiration #impact A post shared by Paul Montenegro (@pml6852) on Oct 14, 2019 at 4:51pm PDT\nWalking through the magical tunnel of stars is a must-do for anyone in Vancouver looking to get into the holiday spirit.\nIf you can't get enough, then you should take a trip out to the Capilano Suspension bridge this season to see the magical canyon lights.
