Bright Nights Christmas Train


During the holiday season, the Bright Nights Train and Plaza at Stanley Park sparkles with three million twinkling lights, decorating the darkness that comes early at this time of year.


The Season of Generosity


Partial proceeds from the sale of Bright Nights tickets go to the BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund, which helps burn survivors and their families. $1.4 million has been raised over the past 14 years.

Entrance to the Bright Nights Train Plaza is by donation.


Bright Nights is open from Thursday November 6, 2015 until Saturday January 2, 2016.
