This 7 acre Magical Mild Show close to Edmonton brings all the Christmas cheer

If you’re already preparing to get the most out of the magic of Christmas this year, a magical lights show near Edmonton, Alberta is definitely a place to add to your list.

The IG-worthy Winter Wonder Forest exhibition is in a completely new location this year, transforming 7 acres of a motorhome park in the town of Gibbons into a festively lit forest.

The event, which runs from November 19, 2021 to January 9, 2022, gives attendees the opportunity to explore thousands of lights as they walk through the entire outdoor area.

Various activities are also offered throughout the duration of the exhibition, including an artificial snow maze, horse-drawn sleigh ride, and a vacation-themed train.

And to top it off, the entire experience is a fundraiser for the True Start Foundation, an affordable housing initiative so you can spread the Christmas cheer and have your own fun.

Don’t worry, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus are also there for you if you want to visit their workshop with short-term gift wishes.
