Park and Tilford Christmas Lights in North VAn

Dec 22, 2005 (Dec 5)

By Catherine Barr


It's a winter wonderland down at North Vancouver's Park and Tilford Gardens. The eight themed gardens have been transformed into the perfect family gathering place to celebrate the season with thousands of glittering lights. Hot chocolate, live music and visits by Santa are all part of the experience. Sponsored in part by the North Shore Outlook, and in support of the Zajac foundation, the display opened on Dec 3- Kids' Night was on Dec 10 and Romance Night took place on Dec 20th. The display is open right through until the new year so come on down - you won't be disappointed.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
