When you live downtown in the city, you can end up missing out on getting to experience the beautifully decorated houses during the holidays.
And sure, you can visit one of the many festive light displays throughout the GTA, but they don’t give you that sense of holiday nostalgia like seeing a house decked out in Christmas lights.
This holiday season, if you’re dying to see some good old-fashioned Christmas lights, you’re going to want to head to Old Scugog Road in Bowmanville.
Located just over an hour from Toronto, Old Scugog Road is home to the most incredible Christmas light displays that go beyond your traditional twinkle lights.
Picture over 100 homes decked out in not only lights but also spotlights, moving Ferris wheels, projection screens playing movies, and Santa displays that move and play music; it’s truly a sight to see.
It’s a beloved holiday tradition that’s been running for 30 years and attracts visitors from all across the province.
If you plan to head to Old Scugog Road to take in the lights, make sure to give yourself plenty of time as traffic can get pretty crazy, especially during the weekend.
Here are some photos of the incredible displays from previous years to help you get into the festive spirit…
