"This was my 6th visit to this event. It is a wonderful way to see Upper Canada Village in the winter."


"This is a family favorite as far as experiences go. The kids love the lights and the wagon ride and it's nice to look around in the gift shop at the end of it all. I found the prices in the shop rather high this year."


"The lights of the village over the Christmas Holliday is amazing. So much work , so well done. The kids love it and of course seeing Santa. Well worth making the trip with the family every year."
