Step aside, COVID-19 and step up, holiday cheer.

While several traditional Christmas events have been cancelled due to the pandemic, a new magical 25-minute drive-thru Christmas light experience is coming to town this holiday season.

Victoria Wonderland is a contactless, vehicle-only, drive-thru event that will take place at the cruise ship terminal in Victoria’s historical Breakwater district.

“As our guests drive through an electric extravaganza, they are presented with thousands of lights and immersive visuals, invoking feelings of holiday togetherness and cheer,” the event website reads.

The holiday drive-thru will have visitors remaining in their vehicles as they drive through an immersive LED light tunnel and enter a new world filled with animated lights and holiday grandeur.

According to the event organizers, the 25-minute drive-thru will include larger than life displays, holograms, projection mapping and lasers synchronized to holiday music by local artists that you can connect via bluetooth to your car’s sound system for the best experience.

Tickets are $40 per vehicle but the best part is the proceeds go to several charities including Victoria Hospice, Power to Be, Make a Wish Foundation and Victoria Women’s Transition House.

The new event will run from Dec. 7 to 31 with only a limited number of tickets, with six shows a day and 50 cars per show.
