One of the best parts of the holiday season is seeing all the twinkling lights that decorate the city. But let's face it — it can get pretty cold going for a walk around the neighbourhood to admire all the holiday decor. So instead of freezing, you can stay toasty in your car and drive down a 2.5-km road of lights at Winter Wonderland in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
This holiday season, you can enjoy Canad Inns Winter Wonderland, which is said to be Manitoba's largest drive-thru light show. Driving down this road of lights is the perfect way to get you in the holiday spirit. Winter Wonderland will be open from November 29, 2019 to January 4, 2020, at 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
At this festive event, you can feast your eyes on over 1 million lights illuminating the Red River Exhibition Park. From inside your vehicle, you'll be able to see 26 themed areas all lit up with Christmas lights. There will also be a massive 75-foot Christmas tree covered in nearly 3,000 LED light bulbs.
In addition to all the gorgeous light displays, there are plenty of other things to enjoy. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, you'll be able to go on a complimentary sleigh ride that even has a fireplace to keep you warm.
Plus, there will be an outdoor skating rink that is free with your admission to Canad Inns Winter Wonderland. So don't forget to bring your skates when you go!
Admission to Canad Inns Winter Wonderland is super affordable. It's just $20 for a standard-size vehicle with up to seven passengers. While you're there, there will also be a variety of delicious snacks for sale if you get hungry. You can get mini donuts, popcorn, cotton candy, hot chocolate, and slushies.
Make sure to add this magical event to your calendar. It's the perfect way to spend an evening with your friends and family this winter.
