St. Paul's Hospital Lights of Hope
What: Downtown Vancouver's favourite festive lights display is an eye-popping adornment on the front of St. Paul's Hospital: more than 10km and 100,000 bulbs strung into artful Yuletide shapes and patterns that are guaranteed to add a warming glow to your stroll along Burrard Street. A team of dozens of volunteers takes six weeks to create this twinkling extravaganza and this year's run starts on November 14 with a family-friendly switch-on party. Marking its 22nd year in 2019, keep in mind that this is also the hospital foundation's biggest annual fundraiser––give generously, if you can, via this link.
