Oakville Aglow: Where to find the best holiday light shows in town

The nights might be getting darker earlier, but Oakville’s streets are being brought to life with a smattering of spectacular holiday lights!

Walk through Oakville’s winter wonderland this November with these three wonderful Christmas tree lighting ceremonies:

Downtown Oakville:

Downtown Oakville Tree Lighting Ceremony

Sit with Santa, snack on amazing treats and sing along with your favourite carols at Downtown Oakville’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Nov. 16, 2018.

This beautiful lakeside hub glows under the warm lights strung throughout the neighbourhood, so take a walk, explore the outdoor market and find your little slice of holiday heaven.

Bronte Village:

Experience an old-fashioned Christmas this year at Bronte Village’s Tree Lighting Ceremony and Carol Sing-Along in Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park on Nov. 25, 2018.

You’ll find free drinks and treats, kids crafts, carols from the Tempus Choral Society and a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus of course!

Come early and explore the most beautiful parts of this sparkling neighbourhood at Visit Oakville’s November Instameet! We’ll wrap up our tour in enough time for you to experience all the holiday activities and see the tree light up.

Kerr Village:

May your day be merry and bright at Kerr Village’s 24th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Holiday Market on Nov. 30, 2018. 

This artistic village will bring you music from Denise Fex, an audience with Santa Claus and his elves and boundless fun with McGruff the Crime Dog! Get some of your holiday shopping done at the Holiday Market where you’ll find baked goods, hand-knit items, jewelry, books, gift baskets and so much more.

Kerr Village also works with Toys for Tots to distribute toys to local families in need, so bring an unwrapped gift to put under the tree.

Put a little light in your life this November and come explore Oakville’s glowing holiday spirit!
