Drive-Through Light Festival
Note: This video is from our 2019 indoor event. For safety considerations, Glow Niagara 2020 will be an outdoor, drive-through experience. New video coming soon!
Cruise through 3-kilometers of festive, twinkling displays. These aren't your grandpa's Christmas lights!
Glow Gardens brings Christmas dreams to life for the kids. And it makes adults feel like a kid again!
GLOW FM Christmas Radio
Tune into our exclusive Christmas music station and sing along in your vehicle.
Glow Gardens is transforming the outdoor park space of Safari Niagara into a 3-kilometer, twinkling Christmas landscape with over a million lights. It’s a drive-through, touchless light journey, creating a wonderful, warm and safe experience for the young… and the young-at-heart. Your health is our priority, and COVID precautions are in place from the start to the end of your experience.
Take a leisurely cruise and enjoy larger-than-life reindeer, teddy bears, ornaments and a deLIGHTful 30+ foot tree! You can really set the holiday mood with GLOW FM radio. Turn it up and sing along to holiday favourites.
Most importantly, help Santa find his lost presents scattered throughout Glow Gardens. Spot a present, snap a pic from your window, and post it to social media with #GlowNiagara. You could win a special gift from Santa!
Expect to spend approximately 45 minutes en route, plus a few minutes to queue at the entry. Please arrive only at the designated entry time on your e-ticket. Showing up early or late potentially makes for a congested experience for all those other sleighs in the line-up.
- Special note from Safari Niagara: “While all our animals are asleep at night, the Glow Elves come out to play and create the beautiful drive-through Christmas light journey, Glow Gardens. Our animals need their beauty rest, and they aren’t disturbed or visible in the evenings during Glow.”

About Glow Gardens
Glow Gardens is a holiday festival designed to bring people together to laugh, stroll and play under the twinkle of a million lights. With deep roots in their community, the founding Jansen family, from Langley, BC, connects families and neighbours year-round with their floral and vegetable greenhouses, Darvonda Nurseries; and they have extended that spirit to celebrate the warmth of the holiday seasons with Glow Gardens. ‘Christmas Glow’ first launched in 2017 near Vancouver, BC, and has since expanded to visit more than a dozen locations in Canada, the US and Denmark.
In 2020, Glow Gardens is celebrating Christmas in five locations, with an abundance of caution, and under the guidance and approvals of local health authorities.
