Christmas in Edmonton – This impressive light show is choreographed to the music you can find on your radio at 107.9 FM.

The lights will be on December 1 to 31, 2018.

Christmas at Bob’s – All lovingly hand crafted, this Christmas light display near Old Strathcona takes the term “labour of love” to a whole new level! There is even a soundtrack (88.5 FM) to add to the magic. The switch flips on December 1.
Address: corner of 75th Ave and 108 Street
Spruce Grove’s Central Park – Spruce Grove’s Central Park is bright and beautiful thanks to more than 150,000 lights! Bring your skates and enjoy the display while you take a spin on the skating oval!

Highway 14 lights – This one is close to my heart because it’s close to my house! In Strathcona County, on highway 14, just east of highway 21 is a beautifully lit acreage (including their ferris wheel!). This is not a spot to stop and walk around, but if you’re driving by, it’s a sight to be seen, for sure!
