Bright Lights Windsor Goes City Wide With Light Displays Throughout The City

Consistent with public health guidelines associated with the “Red-Control” zone, the City of Windsor is pleased to introduce a reimagined Bright Lights Windsor for 2020 that can be enjoyed across the community in the absence of our traditional event at Jackson Park.

Until January 10, 2021, Bright Lights Windsor – Citywide​ will light up the community with signature displays in numerous City of Windsor buildings around town. Residents can enjoy the displays during their day-to-day travels or as they do their holiday shopping and get into the holiday spirit!

In an effort to bring additional holiday cheer to the community, with City Council’s approval, the City of Windsor has provided $20,000 to each of the nine business improvement associations (BIAs). This investment, totaling 180,000 dollars will be used to purchase holiday lights and displays to further light up our neighbourhoods and support local small business. For further details, visit Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island’s (TWEPI) holiday festival guide at www.yqgholidays.ca.

“We’re very happy to offer this variation on the beloved Bright Lights Windsor theme this year,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “We were saddened when COVID-19 forced us to cancel our traditional event, but with some creative thinking and great partnerships, we were able to come up with something new for 2020, and we eagerly anticipate returning to Jackson Park with an even bigger and better show next year to welcome you back.”
