TORONTO, Nov. 10, 2022 – This winter, experience the new and unforgettable adventure Northern Lights, taking over the Grand Bizarre at Exhibition Place from December 1 to January 8. With over 80,000 square feet of breathtaking installations and uniquely immersive experiences, Northern Lights welcomes guests of all ages to step away from the city and into an unparalleled winter wonderland filled with the cheerful lights, sights, sounds, and feelings of the holidays.
Featuring art installations, breathtaking holiday photo and video opportunities, dazzling light and décor throughout the entire venue, a 25 ft. illuminated Christmas tree, fun-for-all-ages games and activities, holiday vendor market, and so much more, Northern Lights has something for everyone.
“Regardless of what your favourite thing about the holidays is, Northern Lights is guaranteed to deliver the joyful spirit of the holiday season in an exceptionally memorable way,” said Ryan Kruger, Event Director, Northern Lights. “The unique experience unfolds over four distinct areas, each with its own exciting holiday theme and mood, and multiple jaw-dropping photo opportunities that are as beautiful as they are festive. We’re excited for guests to bring their holiday spirit and explore everything they love about the most wonderful time of the year!”
The festive experience kicks off as soon as guests arrive and make their way through a 30 ft. light-filled tunnel, transporting them into the enchanting world of Northern Lights. Once inside, guests can explore the Spirit of the Holidays and engage with larger-than-life toys, oversized holiday décor, and various light installations that will put them inside the world of the holidays. Next is the Holiday Town Square, where guests can visit the holiday vendor market, indulge in delicious holiday-inspired food and drinks, and play some fun festive games. As they continue, they’ll enter The Journey North and become immersed in a forest of real Christmas trees before stepping into a space featuring art and light experiences that bring the holidays to life in a new way. Last but not least, all holiday roads lead to The North Pole and a festive visit to Santa’s iconic home. Here, guests can snap a selfie with Santa (or the Grinch after December 25), grab some milk and cookies, and get a chance to experience what it’s like being one of Santa’s elves.
At Northern Lights, guests can bask in the glow of twinkling holiday lights, take beautiful photos under magical lighting, shop at the holiday market, engage with enchanted characters and holiday scenery, play festive games, eat, drink, and be very, very merry.
