So far, LED lights have been retrofitted on many of the displays. The LED light replacement program will continue to be an important priority as the displays are updated.

About the Lights

The Burlington Festival of Lights is Burlington’s longest running festival, lighting up the waterfront from dusk to dawn over the holiday season. 2017 marks the 22nd year for this special seasonal festival.

Over 60 festive displays light up Burlington’s Spencer Smith Park through the holiday season. Wander through the park with family and friends, or get a full view of the themed displays while driving along Lakehshore Road at the city’s waterfront. it’s a magical sight for the whole family, especially the young at heart.
