VANCOUVER, BC – BC Place will be lit as a giant poppy on November 11 in observance of Remembrance Day, one of 18 community initiatives that the stadium is amplifying with the Northern Lights Display this month.
The schedule begins with a special Moustache Show for November 1 to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. On November 16, BC Place will light in blue and white for Louis Riel Day in recognition of the Métis leader’s advocacy for the protection of the rights and culture of the Métis Nation.
Other illuminations for the month include Covenant House Vancouver Sleep Out, St. Paul's Foundation's Lights of Hope, and British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund Bright Nights, among others.
BC Place is recognized around the world as a landmark of Vancouver’s skyline and a place of pride for all British Columbians. Besides enhancing the overall guest experience during events, the stadium’s Northern Lights Display is used to amplify important causes upon request from the community.
