Fall is almost over and that means Christmas is just around the corner. That means presents, snow, and magical lights. Thankfully, this year you won't have pay to walk through a park filled with lights in Victoria. This new and totally free Victoria holiday light festival is coming this winter right in the heart of the downtown. By the sounds of it, it is a must-do this holiday season so make your calendars.
Victoria is a magical place in the wintertime. From the awesome Christmas markets to the impeccable weather, the city has everything you need to celebrate this holiday season.
To switch things up this year, the Downtown Victoria Business Association will be putting on a totally awesome and completely free event. This event will allow you to walk through a massive Christmas light display right in the heart of downtown Victoria.
And when we say it’s going to be massive we really mean it. Altogether, the light show will cost a whopping $500,000 and you don’t even have to pay to see it.
Between twinkling fairy lights to trees completely covered in large bulbs, this event is giving off serious Vallea Lumina vibes and we are here for it.
While we are still enjoying the last little bit of fall, this event will creep up sooner than you think. We suggest writing this event down because you won’t want to miss it.
According to an email sent to Narcity, the awesome event will be taking place this winter from December 13 to 30, 2019. The light show will be completely taking over the Centennial Square so you won’t even have to travel far for it as it is literally right downtown.
The Lights of Wonder was designed by the Downtown Victoria Business association as a way to have all groups of people come together to celebrate the holiday season.
While Victoria is always looking magical and lit-up, this winter, everything will be covered in lights. Even the 40-foot trees will be covered top to bottom in twinkling lights so get your cameras ready.
As a gift to us, the association has made the event free which is amazing considering how expensive it can be to live in cities like Victoria.
Donations are accepted with all proceeds going towards Victoria charities. So even if you give $5, it's going to a good cause.
Even if you’re not living in Victoria, we strongly recommend travelling and heading down to this event. It’s going to be the perfect way to celebrate all things X-mas.
And we still can't get over the fact that it's free.
Lights of Wonder
When: December 13 to 30, 2019

Why You Need To Go: It's the most magical place to spend an evening totally free.
