From the first step into the myriad of lights decorating the path around Lafarge Lake, you will instantly feel as if you walked into Christmas town. The lights at Lafarge Lake are an annual display set up around the holiday season. Seeing the amazing light display can easily turn into an annual tradition for you and your family. As the largest light display in the Lower Mainland, it features hundreds of thousands of bright lights. The twinkling glow helps guide you around the lake. The beautiful lights provide a warm glow in the winter night.
Community made light display
The members of the Coquitlam community made most of the lights using recycled materials. Can you believe that they used pop bottles and milk jugs? If you're interested in taking part in the making of the lights, community members can drop in at light-making workshops hosted by Coquitlam's Park Spark team.
In need of refreshments?
The city set up a concession stand this year to keep you fueled and energized on your walk. Make sure you get a snack or a hot beverage so you can stay warm on your cozy walk in the chilly outdoors. You can easily find the concession stand located near Town Centre Park Plaza. It will open from Wednesdays to Sundays, 4:30 to 9 PM.
How do you get there?
If you're driving, there's plenty of parking space available in Lot D off of Trevor Wingrove Way. And if you take transit, it's only a short walk away from the Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain station.
When to see the lights?
The light display will be up all the way until January 21, 2018. So you have plenty of time to a look at this gorgeous display. If you see anyone from Team Leo along the path when you visit, be sure to say hi and take a selfie with them.
