Bright Walk in White Rock will transform White Rock’s waterfront this holiday season with a free-lighted display in Memorial Park. From December 2, 2023, to January 7, 2024, head down to the beach to enjoy a stroll along the seaside and enjoy the lighted displays. In addition to the 20-foot Christmas tree, there will be new light installations featuring over 50,000 lights, an illuminated tunnel, snowflakes and an 8-foot-tall selfie frame! And the White Rock Pier will be lit up in holiday colours nightly.
The official light-up celebration is on December 2 from 4 pm to 8 pm. Visitors are invited to enjoy an evening full of live entertainment, photos with Santa, light-up robot and juggler performances, kids’ crafts, games and more. At 4:30 pm, City of White Rock mayor, Megan Knight and members of the City council will be on hand to throw the switch and light the Christmas tree. And, between 5:00 and 7:30 pm keep an eye on the water for illuminated sailboats from the International Yacht Club of BC’s annual Sail Past!
Bright Walk in White Rock runs until January 7 … so there is lots of time to visit and enjoy the lights and the seaside, and if you’re there before December 22 take some time to visit the Christmas Craft Market at the White Rock Museum! Grab a hot chocolate at one of White Rock’s cosy coffee shops before you head to the waterfront and be sure to plan ahead and make a reservation for dinner at your favourite White Rock restaurant … many of them have covered and heated patios so you can eat and marvel at the lights … and the view of Semiahmoo Bay and the historic pier is pretty great as well!
The light display will be lit from dusk to dawn on weekdays and will be on all-day weekends and holidays.
