With over one million lights spread out over 15 acres of garden, VanDusen Botanical Garden’s annual Festival of Lights sparkles with holiday magic.

The festival also offers a range of music that includes disco, classic and soul that plays over Livingstone Lake with a breathtaking, ever-changing light display.

Guests may also indulge in a range of delectable vendors as well as yummy seasonal beverages. In addition, the garden offers plenty of places to snap a festive photo with your family, friends, or that special someone.

The festival opened on December 1 and runs until January 6, so there’s still plenty of time to soak in the holiday magic.

Have a look at some of the first photos from this year’s festival.
