It's like being in a fairytale!

Capilano Suspension Bridge with its 140 metre bridge hanging 70 metres above the river it's without doubts one of the most amazing spots in Vancouver. You may have seen our beautiful photo essay of Capilano Suspension Bridge, when we followed the footsteps of the millions of visitors who have crossed this spectacular place since 1889 and now we had to return again to experience the magic of Christmas.

Capilano Suspension Bridge presents the annual Canyon Lights festivities from November 30 until January, 2013 and I must say, the show is beyond spectacular. Not only you will have a chance to find yourself in a fairy tale thanks to thousands of twinkling lights but also you can return to your childhood and make a wish under the world's tallest (46.4 m) living Christmas tree! 

Once again, visitors get dazzled by thousands of lights glittering across the Suspension Bridge, throughout the forest and on the Park's newest attraction, Cliffwalk. 

On top of that, you can expect a children’s scavenger hunt, gingerbread cookie decorating, sing-a-long carols with the holiday band and glass blowing workshops with Malcolm Macfadyen.
