Enchant; The largest Christmas light maze in the world is now in Vancouver. Imagine 55,000 square feet of twinkling lights arranged into a maze, where you can search for all nine of Santa’s reindeer along the way.

If you’re thinking of checking out Enchant, here’s what you can expect.

The Food:

Bring your appetite as there are a lot of food trucks and vendors on-site including: I Love Chickpea, Culver City Salads, Disco Cheetah, Dougie Dog, Mo Bacon, Meet 2 Eat, Reel Mac & Cheese and more. There is a covered area to escape the rain where they sell a variety of treats including: glow in the dark cotton candy, chocolate covered pretzels, candy apples and kettle corn. Dig in and enjoy all the delicious items offered while listening to local performers take the stage singing Christmas classics. There’s also a community fire pit to warm up and enjoy the atmosphere.

The Drinks:

The bar serves the following beer and ciders for $7: Whistler Brewing Company’s mountain lager, function junction pale ale, chestnut ale, forager gluten-free lager and Lonetree’s authentic dry apple cider. They serve wine for $8 which includes a BC red and white. Get a more festive beverage for $8, such as: hot mulled wine, Amarula cream & coffee, Amarula cream & hot chocolate and hot spiced cider. Of course, there are non-alcoholic options for a hot drink, like a London fog, mocha, and hot chocolate topped with whipping cream and crushed peppermint.

The maze itself is very picturesque with tons of festive lights to brighten up your holiday. There are reindeer figurines, light tunnels, a 64-foot tree, and an impressive display of dangling lights you can walk through. To add a little touch of holiday magic, there’s even a snow machine (but maybe don’t try to catch these snowflakes on your tongue). The maze takes about 20-30 minutes to complete and Santa himself will be waiting for you at the end.

The Market:
