Love Lights is a Valentines-themed attraction at Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver. It features romantic illuminations and decorations in February.
In 2023 the pink and other colourful lights are on in the evenings from February 3rd to 26th (which includes both Valentine’s Day and the Family Day Long Weekend). It’s an impressive new attraction and highly recommended (for couples on romantic dates, but also for groups of friends and young families).
In this article you’ll learn everything you need to know about Love Lights at Capilano Bridge, and you can even watch a short video showing what we saw on our visit.
SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS IN FEBRUARY
In addition to Love Lights, there are other special events and attractions happening in Metro Vancouver in February too. There is Beyond Van Gogh in Cloverdale and SYNCRA City in Vancouver. Beginning in March there is also Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. in Burnaby.
The first of these other three attractions is a multimedia exhibition showcasing the art of Vincent Van Gogh. It runs until March 5th. The second features light displays and original EDM music. SYNCRA City is in town between February 14th and March 14th (but maybe for longer). The third attraction is where you’ll see superhero models and equipment from Marvel Comic movies between March 3rd and May 28th. All four of these attractions, including Love Lights, are well worth visiting. Between them, there is something for everyone!
Valentine’s Illuminations at Capilano Bridge’s Love Lights Event
Love Lights is very similar to Canyon Lights at Capilano Bridge over the winter holiday season. The main differences are that the illuminations in February are more pink than red and green, and there are lots of hearts instead of Christmas characters and symbols. The music is also equally beautiful, but different (as one would expect).
We went to Love Lights in early February in 2023 and were very impressed. Canyon Lights is one of our absolute favourite Christmas attractions, and Love Lights seems to have almost as many decorations and illuminations. The place looks spectacular! The lights and displays are beautiful, tasteful and fun!

What to Expect at Love Lights
Expect to see lots of beautiful light displays and illuminations at Love Lights at Capilano Bridge. If you like beautiful scenery and taking selfies and cute photos, you’ll love this place!
During the day, the attraction looks much like it does at other times of the year, but with heart decorations and other displays scattered around the property. It’s a world-class tourist destination with spectacular views, a suspension bridge across the canyon and paths and bridges in the forest.
At night, Love Lights is similar to Canyon Lights at Christmas where the park gets lit up at night with holiday displays and illuminations. At Love Lights you’ll see many of the same sights, but with more pink lights as well as hearts instead of things like candy canes, elves and Santa characters. You’ll still see a couple of Christmas trees at Love Lights, but not nearly as many as during the winter holiday season.

Suggestions and Things to Think About
Below are some tips regarding admission tickets and your visit to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.
TIP #1: Love Lights is a phenomenal place to go on a date. Although a fabulously romantic destination, however, it’s not just for couples. It’s great for families and groups of friends too!
TIP #2: Residents of BC can get an annual pass for the same price as a single day ticket. If you live in British Columbia (and have BC ID), you can buy your annual pass online or at the gate. If you have already purchased your single-day ticket, you can also upgrade it to an annual pass on the day of your visit.
TIP #3: You can sometimes get a 5% or 10% discount when purchasing your tickets through the Vancouver’s Best Places website through Tiqets.com when using a promo code. See our article about Tiquets.com for details. Sometimes there is a special promo code with savings, but not always.
TIP #4: Weekdays are good times to go because the attraction is less crowded then (except on Valentine’s Day and the Family Day Holiday Monday). On weekends, however, there is live music as well as Birds of Prey shows at Raptors Ridge.
TIP #5: Hot chocolate at the park costs about $6.50 and it’s really good. If you get it at the restaurant it costs about a dollar more. It’s worth the extra though, in our opinion, especially if you can find a spot out on the patio by one of the fires to enjoy it. The hot chocolate we had there was delicious (especially as it came with chocolate syrup, cream and marshmallows). It was quite decadent!
TIP #6: If you are a resident of BC and want to upgrade your ticket to an annual pass, you can only do that if you purchase your day ticket directly through Capilano Suspension Bridge (either at the gate or through the attraction’s official website). You can’t upgrade a ticket purchased through Tiqets.com or other ticket resellers.
TIP #7: If you live in Metro Vancouver, we highly recommend you buy the annual pass. Having one means you can go back to Capilano Bridge as much as you like, including when they have other special attractions like Canyon Frights at Halloween and Canyon Lights at Christmas.
