Attending Bright Nights has been a part of the holiday season for Tamara since she was a little kid. It’s a tradition we now share with our kids to. Every year when Christmas time rolls around we look forward to heading out to Stanley Park and seeing all the millions of twinkling lights and going for a ride on the train.
Get ready to go down a little bit of memory lane with the photos we share in this post, from dating to married with kids. There is something special about getting all bundled up for the cold weather, loading up in the car and driving downtown. Bright Nights is an event that has many memories for our family. Have you ever been? Keep reading if you’d like the chance to win a family set of tickets!
This holiday season, Bright Nights is celebrating its 20th Anniversary of Bright Nights this holiday season with a Nostalgic Christmas – a look back on Bright Nights memories, family traditions, classic holiday films, vintage toys and more!
Bright Nights also wants you to join the celebration by sharing your favourite Bright Nights memory by tagging #BrightNights20 when you share on social media.
