Christmas at Upper Canada Village is one of the best places to see lights during the holiday season. I usually end up going after Christmas to see the Alight at Night festival to extend the Christmas season a bit. I love just walking around seeing all the pretty lights and there are also horse drawn wagon rides.
Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg is about an hour south of Ottawa. It’s usually open for the festival from the end of November to the beginning on January on select nights from 5pm – 9pm. This year it runs until January 5th, 2019 so there are still a few days to see the lights. I’d recommend buying tickets online in advance since the lines can get long. It’s also best to arrive right when it opens because it can get very busy depending on the night you visit. There are two dinning options but the food is never very good so I’d recommend bringing some snacks or pack a little dinner, buy a drink in the Harvest Barn and eat there.
Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!
