Where can I see Christmas light & decoration displays?
There are, of course, plenty of negatives when it comes to winter. Poor road conditions, freezing cold air, shoveling snow out of your driveway, et cetera. But there are also plenty of good things that come in the winter, like going to see all of the beautiful Christmas lights and decoration displays around the area. We’ve put together a list of three that we’re certainly looking forward to here in Edmonton and surrounding cities. If you’ve got another one in mind, feel free to let us know about it in the comments!
Fort Saskatchewan Enchanted Forest
If you’re up for a trip to Fort Saskatchewan, then head there any time before January 7th, as you will be amazed at the transformation he city has undergone. Several businesses and buildings throughout the city have transformed into the annual Enchanted Forest, including the Dow Centennial Centre, the Shell Theatre, City Hall and the Public Library. You can find a tour guide at any of those locations to make traversing the Fort Saskatchewan Enchanted Forest even easier.
Leduc Country Christmas Lights
Up for a trip to Leduc instead? Then head there anytime throughout the month of December, or on New Year’s Day. Directions to the exact location for the Leduc Country Christmas Lights display can be found on its website, but you will be treated to an incredible, vast Christmas light display that you do not want to miss. Plus, on December 2-4, 9-11, 16-18 and 23-24, your kids can even meet Santa Claus and have free hot chocolate. The display will be closed on Christmas Day.
Zoominescence, a Festival of Light
Finally, right here in Edmonton, you can head to the Edmonton Valley Zoo for a small fee and check out the incredible Zoominescence Festival of Light. The zoo will be transformed into a spectacular exhibit of incredible Christmas lights with the theme of Renewable Energy. The festival will run from December 9th to the 18th, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. nightly. Adult tickets cost $7.50, while kids get in for $5.00.
