We went in 2012 to the Butchart Gardens Christmas Light Show around sunset and spent a very happy few hours wandering around and then having dinner in the restaurant. The light show is outstanding and the kids, 2 and 4 years old, were enchanted. The singers and musicians performing were also wonderful and the kids loved being so up close and personal with the performers (it's all very sweetly casual and intimate). We had dinner in the restaurant, which is very child friendly and family oriented, for a reasonable price. We warmed up and went back outside for another walk around. I've given this a full 5 star review even though they're almost a victim of their own success in that it was crowded even on the paths through the woods. However, we still didn't have to wait long for the carousel and were able to saunter along at our own pace.
Overall a highly recommended seasonal event and we'll go back this year. It is pricey, but you can see where the money is spent by the owners and they do a magnificent job.
