Free holiday fun is coming to the capital

Feeling overwhelmed with all of the holiday events in the capital this year? There’s an easy way to keep costs down while keeping it festive! A sound and light show called “Christmas Lights Across Canada” returns to Parliament Hill this December. It’s a free fifteen-minute outdoor show, projected onto Centre Block, that plays every night from 5:30 PM to 11:00 PM. Check it out from December 8, 2021 – January 7, 2022.

Once you’ve seen the show, there’s no need to call it a night. Both downtown Ottawa and Gatineau‘s streets and landmarks will become host to over 300,000 twinkling lights. You can see them for yourself at several locations, including: Elgin Street, Rideau Canal Park, Confederation Park, Jacques-Cartier Park, the Supreme Court of Canada and Portage Park.
