Where to Meet: The tour starts and ends at the Travel Manitoba Information Centre located at the Forks Market, adjacent to the Johnston Terminal.

Join us as we tour throughout Winnipeg and see the many displays that keep us in the running for the Christmas capital of Canada! While listening to fun and popular Christmas carols, you will see many colourful Christmas light displays that include both residential and businesses. See the Christmas Lights at the Manitoba Legislative Building and the Camels that stand across from it.

We’ll slowly drive down Candy Cane Lane and Polar Bear Lane to view some amusing and enjoyable light displays! Try your luck at Christmas Light Bingo and trivia to win some festive prizes! Learn the importance of using LED lighting in your own Christmas light displays and so much more!
