We have a few quick tips to make the most of your Magical Holiday experience

  • Please keep pace with the vehicle in front of you, you will be traveling at approximately 5 kms per hour.  In the interest of safety, please do not exceed 10 kms/hour at any time. Please no stopping, passing or getting out of your vehicle at any time.
  • We recommend turning your headlamps down to the lowest possible setting, the darker it is the more dynamic the displays.  Please don’t forget to turn your headlamps back on before return to the roads.
  • Last, but not least, add some melodic joy to your drive, tune your radio to 88.7 FM to enjoy merry melodies provided by 96.3 The Breeze.


The Canadian Tire Magic of Lights offers a vibrant atmosphere, especially during the weekends. Throughout the bustling holiday season, many visitors arrive on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays between 6:30pm and 9:30pm. Typically, you will enter the Magic of Lights experience in under 10 minutes, though there may occasionally be slight delays.  The 2.7 kilometer – 30 minute journey will be enjoyed travelling at 5kms/hr.

For those seeking a more intimate and tranquil experience, we recommend planning your visit from Monday to Thursday. Additionally, arriving earlier (between 5:00pm and 6:30pm) or later than 9:30pm on weekends can be a savvy choice to steer clear of the crowds and savor a leisurely outing.
