Peek into the Past.
View Fort Vancouver in a different light...candlelight! Take a trip into the past and see what life was like at Fort Vancouver after dark on a lantern-lit journey with a Park Ranger through a night at Fort Vancouver.
"Experience live theater and take a lantern-lit journey with a Park Ranger. Peek into the past with costumed interpreters performing historical vignettes of a night at Fort Vancouver. Learn about your urban national park then and now while walking through the Fort's buildings.
