Overview

Add some light to your holidays!


Now in its fourth year, Magic of Lights Ottawa is returning to the Wesley Clover Parks Campground for the 2019 holiday season!

This magical event is comprised of LED displays celebrating the joy of the holidays. A “drive through” experience from the comfort of your own car, at every turn and in every direction the route is overflowing with spectacular light displays and animations. Pile everyone in the car and bring them out to see the lights! Magic of Lights runs every evening, including holidays, from 5:00pm to 10:00pm.

This year, Magic of Lights welcomes the CHEO Foundation as a new charity partner and is proudly dedicating $100,000 in funds generated by the event to this amazing local organization! The CHEO Foundation is responsible for developing, accepting, distributing, and recognizing philanthropy in support of CHEO, the CHEO Research Institute and Roger Neilson House. Community support enables CHEO to offer a wide variety of pediatric programs, lead innovative research, acquire state-of the-art equipment, invest in ongoing medical and nursing education and provide assistance for families in crisis.
