The dazzling 1-kilometre trail of lights will also be making a comeback, and you can wander through glowing installations and interactive displays.

You can expect to see a whimsical gingerbread house, Singing Forest, fire pits and festive music. On weekends, there will be fireworks over Mill Pond, carollers, and a horse-drawn carriage carrying Santa around the village.

There will be lots of heart-warming food to indulge in too, from over-the-top hot chocolate to burgers and BeaverTails.
