Canyon Lights opens Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
Canyon Lights opens Friday evening at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park with the biggest and brightest holiday light display to date.
CLIFFWALK, the park’s latest attraction and a hit with guests since it opened in June, brings an exciting new holiday thrill during the winter chill. The narrow 700-foot cliff-side walkway, split into ascending and descending staircases and viewing platforms takes guests along the colour-washed cliff-face, through an enchanting light display high above the rushing waters of Capilano River.
In addition to the breathtaking sight of hundreds of thousands of lights twinkling throughout the park, across the Suspension Bridge and throughout Treetops Adventure, Canyon Lights continues its popular traditions – gingerbread cookie decorating, sing-a-long carols with the holiday band, and blown glass ornament demonstrations with Malcolm Macfadyen.
“We are so pleased that Canyon Lights has become such a wonderful holiday tradition,” says Nancy Stibbard, owner and CEO. “Since 2007, we have raised over $87,000.00 for the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. Our goal for this season is to raise $20,000 this year to support Burn Awareness Week in BC elementary schools in 2012.” Burn Awareness Week targets children ages 5 to 12, who are considered high-risk for burns, teaching them to be responsible for their own safety and making their families aware of potentially harmful situations.
Canyon Lights will be on display from December 2, 2011 to January 1, 2012 from 5:00 – 9:00pm daily, except on December 25, when the park is closed all day. The cost for an adult is $25, children (6-16) are $5 or $50 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 children).
Capilano Suspension Bridge is part of the Capilano Group of Companies (CGC), which comprises retail, lodge and attraction businesses including Moraine Lake Lodge and Cathedral Mountain Lodge near Banff, Alberta.
