Bright Lights Windsor kicks off Thursday evening at 6:30pm in Jackson Park.

Following this year’s theme, “Walking in a Windsor Wonderland,” the event pathway will guide you through a series of festive and seasonally themed displays: Wish Upon a Star, Winter Wonderland, Candy Cane Lane, Santa’s Stable, Peace & Love Around the World, and W.E. the North.

Enhanced COVID-19 measures will include the following:

  • Directional signage to manage the one-way flow of people
  • Properly spaced attractions to avoid traffic jams and gatherings
  • WE Made It: Holiday Market to have increased spacing between vendors to allow for physical distancing
  • Masks required to be worn when physical distancing of two metres is not possible

The park will be lit every night until January 9th. Here is all you need to know to join the fun.

Hours:

The park will be lit every night from 5:30pm to 10pm.

Sensory friendly “Silent Nights” are offered on Tuesday evenings. The lights will be on, but sound will be muted and strobe elements paused so the display can be enjoyed in a peaceful environment that is accommodating to sensory sensitivities.
