There’s just something about colourful lights that signify Christmas is here at last.
This year, the Lion’s Festival of Lights is back for their 31st year to brighten up Calgary’s 14th Street NW with over 300,000 shining lights.
The display is put together by volunteers who spend thousands of hours creating the shining assortment of Christmas figures and decked-out trees.
This year’s festival is now 99% green as it is created using LED bulbs connected by nearly three kilometres of power cords.
Festive Calgarians can check out the drive-by display starting on Saturday, December 2, all the way until January 8, 2018 – because the spirit of Christmas doesn’t have to leave after the 25th!
Grab a hot chocolate, bring along some family and friends, and enjoy the free display to get yourself into the spirit of the season.
When: Saturday, December 2 to Monday, January 8
Time: Opening day 5 pm, then 6 pm to midnight daily
Where: Confederation Park – 14th Street NW, north of 24th Avenue, Calgary
