Uxbridge Fantasy of Lights
Christmas is almost here… My favourite part about Christmastime are the lights. I love driving down a street at night and seeing the houses all lit up. There’s something really magical about it! So when I heard about the Uxbridge Fantasy of Lights, I knew it’s something I would love to attend, and I knew I had to spread the word to anyone else out there who loves to see the lights during Christmas.
What Is the Uxbridge Fantasy of Lights?
The Uxbridge Fantasy of Lights is in its 8th year and is hosted by the Optimist Club of Uxbridge. Local businesses, organizations, schools, churches, groups etc., create a LED light display for everyone to enjoy. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, residents and visitors will drive or walk through Elgin Park in the evening to enjoy the displays.
Anyone is welcome to create a LED display. Participants wishing to do so must register and provide contact information. There is no fee for setting up a LED display but donations from everyone are welcome.
What’s the Purpose?
- To offer a family oriented celebration of the Holiday Season in Uxbridge
- Increase public awareness of your business or community group
- Optimists will collect donations from the public to support their work with the youth of Uxbridge
