Lighting up Halifax

It’s that time of year again…

From Halifax to Hubbards, Sambro to Sackville, Dartmouth, Bedford, and all places in between, these are the best Christmas lights in HRM! Hundreds of staples, thousands of tie wraps and millions of ooh’s and aah’s later, we are ‘Lighting up Halifax’!

We will be adding to our list as the lights continue to shine so be sure to check back to find all the best spots. If you would like to be included in our list or know of a great place that should be shared, please let us know by sending an email.


Cornwallis Park, 1181 Hollis Street

Cornwallis Park is home to ‘Splendour in the Park’, an enchanting light show set to classic holiday music. This event is a part of the Halifax Lights Festival and takes place daily until January 2nd, 2019.  The show is from 4:00pm to midnight (music ends at 11:00pm).

Connaught Avenue/Norwood Street/Rosebank Avenue/Jubilee Road – WOW! This is what Christmas Lights are all about! We suggest you park your vehicle and take a stroll around this festive block to fully enjoy its’ magic! Look for Santa in the window and enjoy the Christmas movies on the big screen.
