Christmas Glow first launched in 2017 near Vancouver, Canada, and since our first experience, we have been looking forward to Glow each season to help us get into the Christmas Spirit. Glow has proven to be a fantastic event to take the kids to, full of so many light displays and Christmas cheer. This year, there are two locations in British Columbia that you can take in the festivities: Vancouver and Abbotsford. We chose the Abbotsford location to enjoy the magic.
It was fun wandering around and watching the sparkle in the kids’ eyes under the twinkle of a million lights. This year the theme is helping Santa’s Elves find “Santa’s Lost Presents”. The kids absolutely loved running around trying to find all of the reindeer after “the sleigh fell over and they got away”. One of the best parts of Glow for the kids is how interactive it is with the mission they have to complete. They LOVE it!
There were some impressive displays this year, one of our favorites being the hot air balloons. However, our favorite year so far is still last year, with the Trip Around The World theme. After our experience last year, it felt like we were not as “wow’ed” this time. Something was missing. It was, though, still enough to know that we will definitely be back again next year. What we did love about the light displays this year, was that you could sit in a lot of them somehow — the kids thought that was the coolest. Ever. Plus, the best part about Glow is that it’s indoors — so you won’t be freezing outside while taking in all the magic.
In Canada, you can also find Glow in Edmonton, Halifax, Ottawa, Saskatoon and Toronto, and in the US in Pittsburgh and Seattle. If you have not yet been to Glow, we urge you to go and promise that you will want to return again next year.
Take a look at some of our highlights from this year:
