Forget walking in a winter wonderland — you can drive through one this holiday season!
Bingemans Gift of Lights in coming back to Kitchener, Ontario, from November 12 to December 31. It is the largest drive-thru holiday light display in southwestern Ontario, and it features everything from a gorgeous tunnel of lights to bright Christmas decorations. With over 300 displays and a million lights, the entire path runs 2 kilometres long!
From November 12 to December 15, visitors can drive through and admire the light shows, starting at 5:30 p.m. through 9 p.m. Starting Friday, December 16, hours will be extended from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. to accommodate more people. Tickets range from $24.95 to $36.96 per car of up to eight passengers and can be purchased ahead of time online.
There's even a radio station to tune in and listen while you drive through the course — Gift of Lights Radio 103.3 FM.

The Gift of Lights grounds will be open through the holidays, including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, if you're looking for something festive to fill the evening.
