The Polar Holiday Drive-Through brings six dazzling levels of holiday décor to Toronto’s Pearson Airport, and even the photos will make you feel festive.
Running from November 27, 2020, to January 3, 2021, the Polar drive-through features three festive worlds, each connected by 300-foot-long light tunnels. The multi-level drive-through is presented by the Concierge Club and Impact XM.
According to a press release, the experience is COVID-19 safe and is permitted under Ontario’s Grey – Lockdown measures.
Polar begins with a sparkling blue and white tunnel, which leads guests to a magical winter wonderland of icicles, snowy trees, and reindeer sculptures.
Visitors will then venture through a sparkling crystal cave on their way to a Christmas-themed world. You’ll be greeted by Santa himself in a land of garlands, nut-cracker soldiers, and Christmas trees.
A shimmering tunnel of gold lights leads guests to the grand finale. A dazzling holiday world that embodies the splendor of the season, with glittering lights and golden décor.
To have the experience is accompanied by festive music, turn your car radio to Polar Radio FM 90.9.
“We have thousands of lights, hundreds of trees, and we’ve used the same snow that’s
used in the movies. It looks very authentic,” said Monica Gomez, President and Founder of The Concierge Club, in the release. “When you add in the special lighting effects, the entire experience really is magical. It will definitely get you into the holiday spirit.”
Polar is completely contactless and COVID-19 safe. Guests must remain in their vehicles at all times and pre-book tickets in advance.
“The pandemic has been very hard on everyone. People just want to celebrate the holidays, see Santa, and experience the wonder of the season – safely of course,” said Gomez.
“That was the inspiration behind this event. It was all about creating an unforgettable holiday experience to give people a break from life in lockdown.”
