Festive Vancouver trolley tour brings Christmas lights and karaoke together


Christmas lights and singing along to favourite carols are two of the best holiday traditions. You can experience this festive two-fer in December thanks to the Vancouver Trolley Company, who are offering a Karaoke Christmas Lights trolley tour.

Merrily you’ll roll along on a 3-hour tour to Bright Nights in Stanley Park, where you can roam around and take in the sights.

Next, hop back aboard to pass by Canuck Place, Hycroft Manor, and the English Bay Christmas tree on your way to the Festival of Lights at VanDusen Garden, where once again you will get to take a break and roam the event.

On your way back to drop off, the trolley will pass by St. Paul’s Hospital Lights of Hope display. And you’ll be cruising along in the trolley all while taking turns doing karaoke renditions of Christmas classics.

Each ticket includes express entry to Festival of Lights and a donation to the BC Professional Fire Fighter’s Burn Fund.
