Best Christmas Lights Displays in Saskatoon
Whether you’re an experienced electrician or you don’t know your AC from your DC, one thing’s for sure – you’re a fan of beautiful Christmas lights displays. Quite apart from the wonderful sense of nostalgia that accompanies the familiar faces, toasty-warm gatherings, and dazzling lights, Christmas lights displays are a fantastic opportunity to create some treasured family memories. And if you live in or around the Saskatoon area, you’re in for a treat indeed.
There’s no shortage of creative, visually gorgeous Christmas lights displays to choose from. Read on to discover some of the very best seasonal events the region has to offer.
CHRISTMAS GLOW SASKATOON: SANTA’S LOST PRESENTS
Set against the stunning background of a million sparkling lights — and scored to the invigorating tune of live music — the Christmas Glow Saskatoon event looks like it’s going to be something rather special this year. A musical light tunnel and the child-friendly Christmas Light Gardens are just two examples of the incredible feats being accomplished with the lights themselves, while the best of Saskatoon’s own food and craft culture will be on display at the vendor’s markets.
Best of all, there’s a licensed on-site bar for the adults to kick back while the kids make the most of the numerous playgrounds and interactive activities available.
2706 CLINSKILL CHRISTMAS DISPLAY
A clear favourite to be included in anybody’s list of the best Christmas lights displays to be found in Saskatoon, the house at 2706 Clinskill has been making a name for itself in this niche for a number of years now. Regularly topping lists of the most impressive displays in Canada, this event’s main draw is the incredibly well-orchestrated link between the lights themselves and the radio station that operates from the same location. Everything is synchronized together, which makes for a dazzling audio-visual spectacle.
THE ENCHANTED FOREST: SASKATOON FORESTRY FARM PARK
Presented jointly this year by BHP Billiton and Saskatoon Forestry Farm, the Enchanted Forest is an annual event that Canadians everywhere can look forward to since it usually makes the list of the largest Christmas lights displays in the entire country. There are tons of attractions on offer to delight the whole family, including a whole miniature street dedicated to candy (the aptly named Candy-Cane Lane), Santa and all his reindeer, and a good old-fashioned 12 Days of Christmas event too.
The event gets added to every single year, so even if you’ve been a repeat attendee over the last while, it’s worth stopping by and having a look – you never know what surprises you will see.
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE: COLLEGE DRIVE
Occupying a corner right next to Clarence Avenue, which itself is pretty impressive when it comes to Christmas lights displays, the Ronald McDonald House goes all-out every holiday season to outdo the previous year’s efforts. Kids will love the creative twist on Christmas classics, while visitors of all ages will get a huge kick out of just how colourful the lights themselves are.
Christmas lights displays come in a lot of shapes and sizes, and in Saskatoon, this is as true as anywhere, with residential property-owners rubbing shoulders with large businesses in an effort to outdo the competition. Spread evenly as they are around the Saskatoon area, odds are there’ll be at least one or two you can get down to without much hassle — so what are you waiting for? There’s no better time than now to start planning your Christmas lights display itinerary.
