Opening Media Release

Re: BHP Billiton Enchanted Forest

Light Show Opens for 18th Season

The BHP Billiton Enchanted Forest opens for drive-thru visitors on Saturday November 19th running every evening from 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm through January 7th. However, those who prefer a brisk walk through the 2.5 km display route will have the first opportunity to experience the lights at the Saskatchewan Blue Cross Push2Play LightWalk on Friday November 18th from 5:30 pm – 9:00pm. Admission for the LightWalk is $5/person or $20/family.

Continuing as the presenting sponsor of the Enchanted Forest, BHP Billiton is also the presenter of the newest display, "The Enchanted Express". This is the first digital video display at the event and features a steam locomotive and passenger cars winding through a mountain tunnel on its way to the North Pole. The entire light show has switched to total LED lighting on all displays, something BHP Billiton Canada president, Giles Hellyer applauded at the media conference. The changeover will save energy while providing more funds for the Foundations. The initiative fits well with the urban forest holiday light show.

Organizers welcomed new display sponsors. Saskatoon Safeway / Sobey's and Shoppers Drug Marts will be selling Enchanted Express Passes for $28/vehicle with up to seven passengers. Gate admission is $10/person or $33/vehicle and children five years and under are Free.

Approximately 40% of the plus 70,000 visitors who visit the show each year are from outside of Saskatoon. With that, the show will once again participate in the Tourism Saskatoon Experience Pass promotion that offers one complimentary vehicle admission for those staying in participating hotels over the seven week run of the Holiday Light Tour.

Proceeds from the BHP Billiton Enchanted Forest are shared by the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation and the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation. Last year, the partners shared $240,000.
