An even brighter version of a holiday tradition awaits at Bingemans this season.
For the third year, the Instagram-worthy Gift of Lights will delight visitors with a stunning two-kilometre drive through a beautifully lit and decorated campground. New this year, though, is the addition of a second tunnel of lights.
“The light tunnel has been incredibly well received over the first two years we have showcased Gift of Lights,” says Mark Bingeman, President of Bingemans. “We wanted to give our guests something even more special this season, so we’ve added the static tunnel from our first year and the animated tunnel from last year. We can’t wait to see the reactions of people driving through.”
The 200-foot tunnel lends itself well to stunning photos, as do the rest of the light displays featured throughout the drive. Bingemans has gone above and beyond and have added even more lights to delight guests this season.
For those who love traditional Christmas tunes, you can play the Gift of Lights radio on 100.1 FM to add to the ambiance as you drive through the light displays. You’ll be treated to classics such as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Jingle Bells and We Wish you a Merry Christmas, among others.
Not only is there a second tunnel of lights being added for this season, but there will also be a special walk-only night on Sunday, December 2. This unique evening runs from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. and will allow guests (and their four-legged friends) to walk through the lights. Admission for the special event will be $15 per family (up to 8 people) and 50% of the proceeds from tickets sold will be donated to the Grand River Hospital Foundation. In addition, anyone who eats at Boston Pizza that night and turns in their receipt will see 10% of their bill donated to GRHF.
The Gift of Lights experience opens on Friday, November 16 and will run every evening until Saturday, January 5, 2019. For more details on hours of operation, please check Bingemans’ Gift of Lights website.
Admission prices online/at the door are $15/$20 for cars, $35/$50 for passenger vans, limos or mini buses and $90/$115 for buses and limo buses. A Speed Pass can also be purchased online only for $5 and will give you express entry through a priority access lane.
