Stanley Park Train
by Fred Vowles
I need to know if the train is open Dec 11 if so how much?
From personal experience is can say even the grumpiest holiday Grinch will leave with a warm tummy and a smile on his (her) face after an evening at Bright Lights in Stanley Park.
The theme this year is "Canada" and there's dancing grizzly bears, elves making maple syrup and other Canadian themes.
The Christmas train is a 10-minute miniature train ride through an enchanted, magical Stanley Park forest that has been decorated with thousand of lights and trees dressed up as candy canes.
Snacks are available including hot chocolate, chestnuts, pistachios, and popcorn.
As usual the firefighters will be their collecting donations for burn survivors (photo courtesy of the Fire Fighters Burn Fund).
And don't forget to bring down any old Christmas lights that you want to get rid of because BC Hydro will donate $2 towards the Burn Fund for every string of lights.
Tickets to ride the train are:
$6 seniors (65+) and kids and young people (2-18yrs)
If you're coming down on a Sunday you have to buy your ticket in advance any other day you can buy in advance or you pick up tickets any day after noon for the same day at the train plaza in Stanley Park.
If you don't want to ride the train it won't cost you anything at all.
The train runs until January 2nd from 3pm until 10pm.
