Bright Lights displays are seen at Willistead Manor in Walkerville

The City of Windsor has taken Bright Lights Windsor across the community in the absence of the traditional event at Jackson Park.

Until January 10th, 2021, Bright Lights Windsor – Citywide will light up the community with holiday displays at numerous City of Windsor buildings across the city.

Lights on the Ouellette Overpass

In an effort to bring additional holiday cheer to the community, with City Council’s approval, the City of Windsor has provided $20,000 to each of the nine business improvement associations. This investment, totalling $180,000, dollars will be used to purchase holiday lights and displays to further light up the neighbourhoods and to support local small business.

“We’re very happy to offer this variation on the beloved Bright Lights Windsor theme this year,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “We were saddened when COVID-19 forced us to cancel our traditional event, but with some creative thinking and great partnerships, we were able to come up with something new for 2020, and we eagerly anticipate returning to Jackson Park with an even bigger and better show next year to welcome you back.”
