Alight at Night
Eastern Ontario’s Biggest Outdoor Light Festival
Bundle up for an evening stroll through this picture-perfect postcard setting! Close to one million lights adorn the heritage buildings, trees, and fences of Upper Canada Village creating a one-of-a-kind magical backdrop for its annual Alight at Night Festival - a true winter wonderland!
Carousel Corner – New at Alight at Night
Something new and magical is coming to Alight at Night! Families will discover a colourful vintage 1965 merry-go-round of prancing horses that will be offering rides for young visitors*. Want a holiday keepsake photo? Life-size reproduction carousel horses will be staged especially for picture-taking in a booth nearby. More memories can be captured in our festival portrait frame, and couples can cuddle for a kiss on a Mistletoe loveseat. Warm-you up beverages will be for sale at the outdoor Carousel Corner Café, where two new holiday huts will each offer a cozy shelter to snuggle up in.
*Carousel rides are for visitors under 100 lbs in weight. Parents or other guardians can stand alongside the horses their children will ride upon. Riders must be 36” tall or be accompanied by an adult.
