Toronto’s Casa Loma is transforming its castle into an outdoor winter wonderland through a beautiful holiday light tour.

Starting on December 3, Casa Loma launches its holiday light tour, where guests will be able to experience features of dazzling themed lights throughout the historic tunnels and gardens.

Running until January 3, 2021, this tour is designed as a self-guided outdoor walk where guests are able to enjoy the beauty of the holiday wonderland throughout the property grounds at their own pace.

“The whimsy and enchantment of winter and the holidays can be celebrated safely, by all, in the picturesque grounds and gardens of our city’s most breathtaking destination,” said Nick Di Donato, president & CEO, Liberty Entertainment Group.

“We wanted to create an amazing experience to delight and surprise guests young and old, who want to enjoy the fantasy of the season and celebrate one of the most magical times of the year.”

Spectacular decorations and outdoor displays are expected to dazzle all who have the chance to experience the beauty of the holidays. Casa Loma’s displays also include Ebenezer Scrooge’s Mansion from A Christmas Carol, where the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future will make an appearance.

Everyone on the property who enters or remains on the premises must wear a mask or face covering as required under the City of Toronto by-law, according to Casa Loma. Physical distancing will also be enforced.

“Guests will be asked to complete a screening questionnaire upon arrival and ticket purchaser’s contact information will be kept for 30 days for potential COVID-19 Contact Tracing,” said the castle representatives.

Tickets go on sale on November 18 for $35, and if you’d like to snack on some festive treats, you must purchase them in advance for $8 along with your ticket.
