Jewel Box of Lights at the Bloedel Conservatory

I went to check out the Bloedel Conservatory this weekend for their ongoing event, Jewel Box of Lights. John Cooper, the Bloedel staff and the Friends of Bloedel have done an impressive job decorating the conservatory. They have created a Christmas wonderland in a tropical, cozy atmosphere. It's a great way to get out of the cold and rain, which is exactly what I did.

I can see Vancouverites adding this to their list of annual family traditions. It is amazing to see how far Bloedel has come this past year and the community and partnerships that have been created.

The Jewel Box of Lights Event runs until January 2nd, 2011

Sunday – Thursday: 10 am – 8 pm
Friday – Saturday: 10 am – 9 pm

Be sure to enter from the 33rd and Ontario Street entrance to avoid the construction.
