There’s no denying that Toronto is home to some pretty spectacular holiday light displays.

But if you’re looking for a new festive display to visit this winter, you should definitely consider paying Burlington a visit.

Every year, the city’s waterfront transforms into a magical winter wonderland during its annual Festival of Lights celebration.

Now in its 22nd year, the festival lights up the waterfront from dusk to dawn over the holiday season – making this the city’s longest-running festival.

This year’s festival will feature over 60 festive displays from Santa’s sleigh to a holiday train set up at along the water.

Visitors have the option of wandering through the park with family and friends and seeing the displays up close, or get a full view of the themed displays while driving along Lakeshore Road.

This year, the lights festival will officially begin on December 1 with an opening ceremony, where visitors can enjoy live music, carolling, the lighting of the Tree of Hope, hot chocolate and burgers, and a visit from Santa.

The grounds will be illuminated until January 8, so there’s plenty of time to make a visit.

Here are some photos from last year’s festival to get you into the festive spirit.
