Tickets will soon be available online as the B.C. Wildlife Park will be holding its popular light show this holiday season, with a few differences to ensure residents are safe this year amid the global pandemic.

On Friday, Nov. 13, tickets will go on sale for Wildlights 2020, started at 10 a.m. The annual event has been held at the park for more than 20 years and this year's show will have 800,000 lights brightening up the park.

This year's event will also feature a new 20-foot-tall brightly decorated Christmas tree, according to the park's website.

The Wildlife Park asks customers to view the event online for details and a direct ticket link will be set up on its website Friday.

There will be a maximum of 500 tickets available each night, which must be purchased in advance on Eventbrite. No tickets will be provided at the door and no refunds will be available.

Wildlights will run nightly from 5-9 p.m., from Dec. 11-Jan. 3, excluding Christmas day. The park will be closed for the duration of Wildlights. Santa will also be staying at the North Pole this year due to COVID-19 concerns and to ensure he's healthy for Christmas, according to the park.

There will be no animal encounters, feed talks, or Family Farm. The Wildlife Express Miniature Train will not be operating for the event this year, according to the park.

Uncle Chris the Clown will be at Wildlights, however he will not have scheduled shows. The event will have one-way traffic routes and masks will be mandatory while inside public buildings for visitors ages three and up, according to the park.
