Lights (a lot of them), camera… action Christmas!

One of the country’s biggest outdoor light festivals is just about ready for you and the holidays.

Located about 140 km outside of Montreal, Upper Canada Village will be undergoing its winter transformation, as the historic location will be decorated with over one million lights to become Ontario’s largest outdoor light festival, Alight at Night.

The illuminated village opens to the public on weekends, starting November 26, before opening nightly from December 16 to January 1, 2022.

Besides, now that the Gardens of Light festival has packed up for the year, Instagrammers need to get their lighting fix somewhere else, so why not make a day of it?

From the enchantment of horse-drawn wagons to the bakery’s fresh bread, a life-size toy train, this holiday road trip will take you down the 401 to a magical place.

The big man himself, Santa Claus will in his workshop until December 23 for photo opps and guests can order Beavertails and make reservations for dinner at the Harvest Barn.
