Add watching beautifully decorated boats in Burrard Inlet to your holiday plans. Carol Ships Parade of Lights, which is in its 50th year, runs until Dec 23. It originated with one boat decorated with Christmas lights off Coal Harbour. At its peak, the parade grew to more than 50 decorated boats with more than 100,000 lights. The ships will sail from West Vancouver today, passing the Lions Gate Bridge at 7:20 p.m., and will sail through Ambleside, Dundarave and Caulfield before heading back to Coal Habour at 9:30 p.m. More than 30,000 people will ride the ships during the 20-day festival.
