Well, you wouldn’t want to pay the City of Burnaby’s electrical bill for December, but it’s worth it.

The city is all lit up for the holidays and now there’s a video showing just how magical our city looks right now.

The video, shown below, reveals how Burnaby has stepped things up to light up our streets.

There’s an overview of how magical Hastings in the Heights looks, as well as city hall and other locations.

The city also just staged the Bright Burnaby event at the Heritage Village Museum.

Oh, and for those looking for more, there’s a Burnaby family that is raising money for sick children this Christmas by lighting up their front yard.

The DuPlessis family at 8222 Burnlake Dr. sent in some photos of their display this year and it’s pretty incredible.

“We have been working hard to make this year’s display unforgettable,” read a news release. “Along with the usual thousands of lights, ornaments and inflatables, there are a number of new additions that will be hard to miss, such as the 12-foot Grinch upon his sleigh, misfit island and a forest of trees. We have ensured all of our classic Christmas display ornaments, some of which have been a part of the display for over 25 years, have been placed with care for your enjoyment. This year’s display is dedicated in memory of my dad, Frank DuPlessis, who helped build a number of the classic items that I hope you will come see and enjoy.”  
“Our Christmas display is synchronized to music so please come and enjoy the 12-minute show from the comfort of your vehicle by tuning to HoHoHo Radio at 92.3 FM or while socially distanced at curb side,” said a statement from the family.  

The show runs daily from 4:30 p.m. to midnight until Jan. 9, 2022.

This home is close to the intersection of Lougheed and Brighton near Costco, and they are collecting donations for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
