Ring in the New Year under the twinkling lights of Victoria’s Lights of Wonder


Though it may be hard to believe, 2022 is coming to a close.

This year, we have the opportunity to gather with loved ones and celebrate the new year to come—and what better way to do it than under a blanket of dazzling lights in downtown Victoria?

DVBA’s Lights of Wonder officially kicked off on December 15th, and the free, accessible, and all-ages outdoor light display welcomes guests to experience a variety of activities and entertainment each day.

On New Year’s Eve, this Saturday, December 31st, you’ll have the opportunity to ring in the New Year at Lights of Wonder in Centennial Square!

There will be two countdowns to the New Year:

9 p.m. – Want to celebrate the New Year and have the kids in bed before midnight?

The 9 p.m. countdown is perfect for families (or just those of us who like to go to bed early!)

12 a.m. – Honouring traditional New Year’s AND closing out Lights of Wonder for the year with the countdown to midnight!

Whether you choose the 9 p.m. or the 12 a.m. countdown, wear you shiniest, sparkliest, brightest outfits!

DVBA will be handing out glow sticks and prizes, and the 360-degree camera will be on site with some fun accessories, so you can get the coolest videos of your friends and family.

The best part? This event is FREE, and you’re welcome to stay for as long or as little time as you like.
