As many services across Vancouver Island have shut down for the day in an effort to clear the snow, one festive event, in particular, is having to follow suit. 

Tonight thousands of Twinkling lights at the Butchart Gardens will go dark as staff work around the clock to clear the snow that currently obstructs the path of the display spanning 1.6km.

Due to the last-minute cancellation, those that specifically purchased tickets for tonight, are allowed to use them any other night once the Butchart Gardens reopen.
