The holidays are about to get a little merrier, and a lot brighter with the return of downtown Victoria’s largest free outdoor light display!

Once again, the Lights of Wonder holiday celebration is returning to the downtown core next week on Thursday, December 15th.

The light installation—purchased by the DVBA for $500,000 in 2019—brought over 75,000 people to Victoria’s epicentre in its first year.

After missing a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festive event returned last year, transforming Centennial Square into a holiday wonderland. 

The spectacle features four interactive light tunnels, a 40-foot festive tree, and other themed light displays.

From December 15th until December 31st, the free, accessible, and all-ages outdoor light display will welcome guests to experience a variety of activities and entertainment each day.

This year, Lights of Wonder will also include nightly performances every night except for on Christmas Day. A schedule of event for each night can be found on the Downtown Victoria Business Association website.

As the Lights of Wonder kicks off at 4 p.m. daily, it’s the perfect way to spend an evening downtown.
