The Festival of Northern Lights is a lighted display festival that takes place annually from mid-November to early January with more than 400 displays.
It has become one of the most beloved family experiences in our three-county region. No grinch can resist the magic of the lights as they gradually illuminate the Sydenham River and Harrison Park.
Spectacular lights. Sensational sounds. It’s a one-kilometer winter stroll through the heights of innovation to the edge of your imagination. Follow the trail along beautiful, tree-lined pedestrian streets and pathways through the Village and around the Mill pond to discover magical, mega-watt light displays.
