The season of holiday cheer and Christmas wonder is finally around the corner. Fall in Saskatchewan may have been short this year, but snowfall always makes for a magical holiday season. Returning for another year is Saskatoon's Enchanted Forest light display, featuring over one million twinkling lights. This stunning attraction opens very soon so if you find yourself in need of some Christmas cheer, then listen up.

Christmas light shows are one of the many things that Canada's cities do very well. From Victoria and Vancouver to the east coast and even Seattle, Canadians will go anywhere to experience the magic of the season.

Returning this year to Saskatoon for the 21st consecutive time is a massive light display that is so huge you have to drive through it. There are so many lights on this tour that it makes the whole area glow with breathtaking colours. There are said to be over one million lights on display. 

While this is not a free light show, you can feel good about going as all the money raised goes to several local organizations around the city. 

Starting Saturday, November 16, you can drive through a wicked light display in Saskatoon. 

Called the Enchanted Forest, this event takes place at the local zoo all winter long. Reoccurring nightly until Monday, January 6, 2020, you can take in all the sights and sounds of Christmas. 

As you drive through you will be prompted to switch your radio to listen to Christmas music. While it sounds corny, it really is the best experience. 

When you start your drive, the light show will take you through the "12 Days of Christmas" carol performed through interactive lights. 

Following that, there are cute displays literally everywhere you look. The wonderful thing is that as the event continues annually, more and more lights get added. 

Be sure to look up, while some of the displays are large, others are tiny and just as incredible. 

Driving slow is a must to ensure you don’t miss anything. If driving isn’t your thing or you're trying to be more eco-friendly, there are some nights available to do a walking tour. 

Just be sure to dress warmly. Winter in Saskatoon is beautiful but it is also freezing. 

Prices at the gate are $10 per person or $35 per car of up to seven people. While cash is preferred, all debit and credit cards are accepted. 

Every year the event sees around 80,000 visitors so you know it’s good! We cant wait to see you all there.
