If you’re in Ontario this winter and are looking for fun, low-cost activities to get into the Christmas spirit, pack your family into the car and check out this one of a kind light show. It will bring Christmas right to your vehicle.
Bingemans, in Kitchener ON, has put together The Gift of Lights: a 2 km drive-thru light display! This creative spectacle decked the halls of a 200-foot light tunnel. The tunnel illuminates over 30 full light static and animated displays of Christmas favourites.
The Gift of Lights experience last approximately 20 minutes. Visitors drive their car slowly through the tunnel and tune in to Gift of Lights Radio at 100.1 FM to add holiday music to the experience. While music plays throughout your car, and lights flash from every angle, The Gift of Lights transports your vehicle into a true Christmas wonderland.
This is the first year Bingemans has set up the Gift of Lights. And it has surely become a hit, already bringing in many families, couples, groups and corporate events.
According to the Bingemans website, the light show gets quite packed during weekends. The website suggests that to avoid long lines you should plan to visit from Monday through Thursday. But, if you do wish to visit on a weekend or during peak holiday times the website also offers a “Speed Pass”. This pass will gain you entry through a separate, priority access lane.
The Gift of Lights has received many positive reviews from its visitors, stating that “the driving tour is very well put together”, and that they “loved the fact that it was not advertising, that it was an actual Christmas display.”
