Last week my family and I made a trip into the Vancouver to check out the premiere night of Enchant Christmas Light Maze & Market.
Enchant is the world’s largest Christmas light maze, including a 55,000 square foot maze of light sculptures, a 64-foot Christmas Tree, live performances, an outdoor fire pit, and a sprawling marketplace including food and drink vendors serving mulled wine, specialty coffees, and holiday beers. Enchant will run from November 25th and end on New Year’s Eve with a firework finale.
The night that we came into the city to check out the maze is was a classic Vancouver day, rainy, cold & wet! We tried our best to not let this damper our Christmas spirits. My kids truly enjoyed the experience and enjoyed running all over the maze trying to help Santa save Christmas.
Some tips for anyone planning to attend this event this holiday season:
- Wear boots! The base of the entire maze is bark mulch, add the Vancouver rain and you can see why you would need boots.
- Bring an all-terrain stroller, or no stroller at all. I don’t believe this to be very wheelchair-friendly.
Here are the 5 things you must see at Enchant Christmas Light Maze:
The Light Tunnel: This was my favorite spot in the maze, it was stunning. A great place for some photo opportunities.
The Hanging Twinkle Lights: My kids loved walking through these and this was a fun place to take pictures.
The Tree: The centerpiece of the maze is a 64-foot Christmas Tree, it truly is a sight to see.
The Reindeer: The whole idea behind the maze is that Santa has lost his reindeer and you need to find them and save the day. They are huge and breathtaking.
Thank you to the team at Enchant for hosting our family. We look forward to visiting again over the school Winter Break. For more details on the event please check here.
