Lumieres de Noel

From December 5, 2013 to January 7, 2014.

In Canada’s capital, hundreds of thousands of multicolored lights brighten the winter landscape. The festivities begin with a lighting ceremony in early December and continue until early January. During Christmas lights in Canada, lights twinkle every night from 4 h 30 to 2 h in Ottawa-Gatineau.

The program of the Christmas Lights across Canada was launched in 1985 to brighten the winter months in Ottawa. At first, only the Parliament hill was illuminated. Then, over the years, the program has grown. Today, the Christmas lights are shining, each winter, over more than 60 sites in Ottawa and Gatineau along the Confederation Boulevard each winter.
