Enchant will bring the world's largest Christmas light maze to the heart of the Canadian city.

This Christmas Vancouver is celebrating the holiday season with the biggest and brightest event the city has ever seen. Enchant is set to be the world's largest Christmas light maze, made up of over 55,000-square-feet of brilliantly illuminated sculptures.

Created by SHINE, a Vancouver-based lights company behind some of British Columbia's most popular venues and attractions, the Enchant maze will combine beautiful and complex light structures to make winding passages for visitors to follow.

A 64-foot-tall tree, covered in over 85,000 LED lights, will stand in the middle of the maze, as well as 23-foot-tall reindeer, trees, stars and snowy caves all illuminated by glowing lights. The entire maze will take between 20-30 minutes to complete, with the added goal of finding Santa's nine missing reindeer along the way.

The maze, located on 1st and Crowe Street between the Cambie Bridge and Olympic Village, will also feature a host of other festive treats. Organisers have planned a charming Christmas market, featuring bustling stalls where over 40 vendors will display local artisanal goods, live performances, food trucks serving delicious seasonal eats and a beer garden where visitors can enjoy a mulled wine or buttered rum by the warmth of an outdoor fire pit.

Guests can also choose to celebrate the holiday season in style in the VIP Lounge - an atmospheric venue that allows groups of 50 or more to relax in a private room, with exclusive access to the light maze, a private bar and gourmet catering options.

In the spirit of Christmas, the event will also support a variety of charities, including Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon, Music Heals, Backpack Buddies, Canuck Place and Variety - The Children's Charity.

Enchant will light up the city from Friday 25 November until Saturday 31st December from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
