Sights, Sounds and Snow for This Year’s Gift of Lights KW @ Bingemans – Enter To Win

On November 15th we continued our Christmas tradition by attending the Bingemans Gift Of Lights Media Event.  This year we were greeted by sights, sounds and a whole lot of snow! In fact, it was a blizzard! While that would cancel many outdoor activities, it created the best backdrop for this year’s event.  The twinkling lights and the sparkly snowflakes seem to dance all around the vehicle as if they could hear Christmas Carols on the car radio.

Gift of Lights KW at Bingemans Was Lit  

This year’s light show included Diane’s favourite toppling penguins, plus some new tumbling teddy bears!
My favourite this year was seeing BUDDY THE ELF lit up amongst some of his elf friends.

As an added attraction, they have added a second tunnel this year to really light things up!
To give you an idea of what last year’s Gift of Lights entailed, watch the video below

An Event for Everyone

This year The Gift of Lights KW includes many choices for how you want to enjoy the lights including a WALK ONLY NIGHT on December 2, 2018 from 5pm-9pm
The remaining days for this year’s event let you enjoy the light show while you keep warm and toasty inside the comfort of your own vehicle, which can be a relief to many seniors and those with accessibility concerns.  We believe this makes the Gift of Lights an event for everyone!
