Free winter light festivals around Toronto

As typical winter attractions have to shut down due to Covid-19 precautions we are lucky that many outdoor light festivals have continued and many of them are free. I have just checked out two of the free festivals - the Wonders of Winter Light Festival in Waterloo and Festival of Light in Burlington's Spencer Park.

Waterloo's light festival is held in Waterloo Park and features over 100 installations using over 100,000 lights. There is plenty of free parking around the area as well. Wonders of Winter event runs November 28, 2020 and continues until January 1, 2021 from 5:30pm to 10:30pm every day.

For Burlington's lakeside light festival this is the 25th year and the event runs Nov 27, 2020 to January 8, 2021 daily from 4pm to midnight.

Brampton has a free Winter Light Festival at City Hall, Gage Park and Garden Square.

Closer to home is the Toronto Distillery District's Winter Village and hopefully their Toronto Light Festival will proceed early in the new year. Hoping as well for the return of the Aurora Winter Festival at Ontario Place. And don't forget all the giant inflatable Santas in Kringlewood!

You can also check out the Bloor-Yorkville Holiday Magic and even though Cavalcade of Lights at Toronto City Hall has been cancelled, they have put up the lights and the Christmas tree in the square.

Then there are a lot of paid entrance exhibitions around, I have plans, and tickets, to go see the Bingemans Holiday Drone Show.
