Last year, we were saddened at the news that Leduc Country Lights would be in its last year of operation. It was a fantastic winter excursion with Santa, Christmas lights, hot cocoa and the chance to sit in a sleigh and deliver presents to a local charity.
The walk through Christmas lights display is one of our holiday traditions for the whole family – from the kids who can walk, to the kids who are too young and are pulled behind, on a sled.
New this year, there is a small admission fee that can be paid either at the gate, or pre-purchased ahead of time on the website. It’s two dollar per person, still making this an affordable way to experience some Christmas magic outside of the city. The proceeds will be used for operating costs, and maintenance. Guests are encouraged to bring a donation for the Leduc Food Bank when they visit.
The new winter wonderland will stretch out over 80 acres and incorporate buildings and objects on display at the antique society, five kilometres west of Leduc. The couple previously running the light display decided to donate it last year, after the attraction just got too large for them to handle. You can expect some changes, and new experiences at the holiday attraction – and we can’t wait to check it out.
You can visit the lights between November 30, 2019 and January 1, 2020.
