Enjoy the magic of the Lower Mainland’s largest free outdoor lights display at Lafarge Lake in Town Centre Park. The Lights at Lafarge drew in over 200,000 spectators last year, and is continuing to be a fan favourite this year with plenty of free events! 

The impressive display encircles the 1.2 km loop around Lafarge lake, glittering in over 100,000 lights. Separated by 10 zones, you’ll walk through the winter lights entry gate, past a 90-foot caterpillar, an outdoor dining table illuminated by a chandelier, and get to experience everything from a fantasy forest to giant-sized mushrooms, beehives & flowers!
