On those dark winter nights, there’s nothing better than a dazzling display of bright lights and technicolour. Luckily, Alberta has no shortage of jolly experiences – some of which you don’t even have to leave your vehicle to enjoy!

Between now and January 1st, fun-seekers are encouraged to visit Discovery Wildlife Park in Innisfail, Alberta for their Winter Light the Night drive-through, a magical festival open every day at 5 pm.

Described as a “display like no other,” this enchanting journey takes about 20 to 25 minutes to complete (depending on how slow you drive) and features trees, animal installations and tunnels along the way.

Of course, there will also be glowing ‘animals’ as an homage to their many furry friends, all of whom you will be supporting via your admission.

The price per vehicle will depend on the number of people you’re carrying but will start at just $30 for vehicles carrying up to 8 people and can range to $100 for buses, limos of vans.

Tickets can be purchased at the gate and once you’ve seen all there is to see, you’ll be able to hop out and grab a bite at their concession, or wander their gift shop.

Check it out and enjoy! It’s going to be a beaut!
