It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! This is an annual tradition at Butchart Gardens. Tens of thousands of Christmas lights brighten up the gardens and provide some spectacular sights! Stroll your way and discover their 12 Days of Christmas displays.
The scene is set as festive brass plays and traditional Christmas carolers sing some holiday classics – you can join in with them! They’ll be performing nightly from 5pm until 9pm.
Want to make your night feel even more Christmassy? Put on your mitts and go ice skating at their outdoor rink! Glide under the beautiful twinkling lights as festive music plays. When you’re done, feel free to grab a hot cup of cocoa from the nearby poinsettia-decorated coffee shop and get cozy in front of the fireplace indoors.
Feel free to grab a bite to eat at their restaurants; there will be Christmassy options on their menu during the season. Their gift shop offers some great Christmas present ideas!
If you’re under 12 years old, you can get a free hot chocolate! Bring a paper snowflake over to the coffee shop to exchange it for your cup of hot cocoa. Find out more about their Hot Chocolate and Snowflakes here.
If you want to experience a magical night in time for the Christmas season, this is it!
