Lighting of the Lights - London, Ontario
The City of London invites Londoners to ring in the holiday season with the annual Lighting of the Lights at Victoria Park on Friday, November 26, 2021. Live entertainment begins at 6:15 p.m. followed by the countdown to the spectacular illumination of the entire park at 6:50 p.m.
“Victoria Park’s Lighting of the Lights is a longstanding tradition in London’s celebration of the holiday season and one I’m personally excited to bring back to our community,” says Mayor Ed Holder. “This time last year, we were asking everyone to stay home and physically apart. While there are still COVID-19 precautions in place for Lighting of the Lights, I invite everyone to come out and join the festivities safely.”
Over 75,000 lights will illuminate the park nightly from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. this holiday season until January 1, 2022. There will also be a variety of other displays in the park, including Santa and his reindeer, the Christmas train and snowmen family. Santa's Mailbox will also be on-site for all the children who need to mail their wish list to the North Pole.
Anyone planning to visit Victoria Park is asked to follow all health precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. That includes maintaining six feet of physical distance from anyone who isn’t part of your household, wearing a mask or face covering and staying home if you feel unwell.
