More than 100,000 lights have turned the walk around Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park into a magical holiday wonderland.
The annual Lights at Lafarge display was officially plugged in with a family-friendly celebration last Saturday (Nov. 26) after two weeks of installation by crews from the city and Star Illuminations from Port Coquitlam, as well as dozens of volunteers.
New elements in this year’s display include a field of icicles on the festival lawn, a heart fabricated by shop students at Centennial Secondary, an ice area with igloos and animals, a double archway and a lit path from the Inspiration Garden.
Favourites like the lighted tunnel, hobbit house and the castle are also back.
Food trucks are at the park as well, and the Rocky Point Ice Cream concession is open, offering icy treats as well as hot chocolate.
The show runs every night until the end of January.
To get there by transit, you can take the Evergreen SkyTrain extension to the Lafarge Lake-Douglas station on the Millennium Line.
