It seems like fall has only just begun, but festive fever is already spreading quickly. Thoughts of gingerbread and twinkle lights are swirling around the city, and many seasonal markets and events are launching soon. The most wonderful time of the year often flies by way too quickly, which is why it's time to start planning your Christmas bucket list now! This season, fill your heart with festive cheer at this incredible light trail outside of Toronto. Bingemans Gift Of Lights 2019 is bringing its sparkling wonderland back for another exciting season.

Gift Of Lights is an annual light installation hosted by Bingemans in Kitchener, Ontario. Located a little over an hour from Toronto, this festive event showcases spectacular illuminated displays and two massive light tunnels. It's the largest drive-thru holiday light display in Southwest Ontario, and you don't want to miss out on the fun.

The drive-thru event invites visitors to pile into their cars and take a Christmas adventure down a glimmering 2-kilometre trail. This year's event promises even more animated displays than ever.

The installation will be held from November 16, 2019, to January 4, 2020. Tune in to the Gift Of Lights radio at 103.3 FM and enjoy some heart-warming holiday tunes as you drive.

Take in the stunning glowing statues from the comfort of your own heated vehicle, where you'll be safe from the bitter winter cold. The event features two long tunnels made entirely of Christmas lights that you can drive your car through for an extra special festive adventure.

A single-vehicle costs $15, while larger vehicles like vans or limos have a higher admission cost depending on their size. Tickets are cheaper to buy online in advance and will cost more at the gate.

You can purchase an additional Speed Pass online for $5 which will get you quick access to the trail through the priority lane. There are also two walk-in only nights scheduled for the season, and you can see all ticket prices and the calendar on their website. 

Explore this incredible illuminated trail and check out some other enchanting events happening around the city for Christmas this year!
