After much deliberation and a two year break, the BC Wildlife Park has decided to not move forward with Boo at the Zoo.
Although this event was spook-tacular and enjoyable for many, the attendance rate wasn’t high enough to offset the costs associated with the event, and the pressures that it put on our facilities team.
Our facilities team consists of 5 incredibly hard working individuals. These individuals are the ones that are responsible for installing over 1 million lights for Wildlights, while continuing to maintain the Park grounds and infrastructure, and the pressures to have hundreds of thousands of lights set up in time for Halloween within a short period of time is difficult and no longer feasible.
Instead, our team will be focusing their efforts on expanding our infrastructure including building an outdoor classroom and aquatic animal rehabilitation pens, building incredible new light displays for Wildlights, and investing thousands of combined hours stringing lights and turning the Park grounds into a stunning holiday experience.
With that in mind, we look forward to welcoming everyone to our 25th annual Wildlights! Stay tuned for details coming soon.
