Harrison Hot Springs is overflowing with holiday cheer this year with a new winter light festival called Lights on the Lake, the Christmas Tree Trail, a Cabin Style New Year’s celebration and much more!

Lights on the Lake is a Sasquatch-themed festival, sharing Harrison’s favourite ways to spend time outdoors. It features light displays that include the legendary, mythical creature hiking, biking, paddling, skiing, fishing, camping, windsurfing and more!


The Christmas Tree Trail starts at the Harrison Visitor Information Centre and Sasquatch Museum and takes you through the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.



Organizers are also planning to make the new festivities a seasonal attraction and return every winter.


“We have designed a three-year implementation plan. Next year, the light displays will be placed around the lagoon, creating a wonderful 1.5 kilometer walk of visual magic, and Year 3 brings additional displays building on Harrison’s nature and wildlife themes,” says Robert Reyerse, Executive Director of Tourism Harrison.

All these winter festivities are FREE to the public! Even better, Harrison Hot Springs is just an hour and a half drive from Vancouver.
