Vancouver Will Be Taken Over By One Million Of Twinkling Lights This Winter

The magical light festival starts in November. ✨
VanDusen's Light Festival With Over One Million Lights Opens Next Month In Vancouver

Anyone who is a big fan of the holiday season just got something big to look forward to on their mostly empty calendar — VanDusen's light festival is officially coming back for 2020.

The garden will be decked out in full lights and this year, a one-way path will take you through the winter wonderland.

Since they're operating just at 20% capacity this year, you'll have so much room to yourself to capture magical moments on your camera.

This year, you'll want to get your tickets in advance and they'll go on sale at an apparently cheaper price than usual starting in November.

Once you've scanned in your prepurchased ticket, you'll get 45 minutes to wander the path and they're also encouraging people to wear masks.

It doesn't feel like the holiday season until you've taken a romantic stroll through the garden with your s/o or wrangled all your friends to go with you for some photo ops.

Even though we didn't get a Halloween Glow in the Garden this fall, we won't miss out on the lights this winter.

Plus, with the one-way path, you'll get to take your time with your favourite parts rather than having to wait for the crowds to disperse before you get your shot under the mistletoe.
