It’s that time of year again… we are ‘Lighting Up HRM’!

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, Dartmouth and Beyond’!

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. Click on each location to find the google map link.
