Holiday Magic at Blue Mountain is a one-kilometre stroll around Ontario’s Blue Mountain Village for a dose of garlands, bows and lighting displays. Weekend visits include a singalong with Dean Holland, dance parties and possible Santa sightings. The multisensory Canadian Tire Christmas Trail has opened in Toronto’s North York. It’s a 1.5-kilometre drive-through of seasonal lights, live entertainment and elf appearances.

The Lions Festival of Lights has returned for its 34th year in Calgary, with a sparkling showcase of 25,000 strings of lights in Confederation Park. Banff National Park has launched In Search of Christmas Spirit, a walk-through lighting experience guided by a lantern puppet named Owl, telling a Christmas story among the illuminated trees and animals.
