Get Cosy on Sparks: Winter Wander

Updated: Dec 20, 2021



The holiday season is upon us and we're deLIGHTed to bring new, interactive décor to Sparks Street this Christmas!!


You may have already experienced our Light Court which brings a dance of light to Sparks creating a stage of your own imagination! Due to its popularity, the Light Court pilot will remain on the street near Metcalfe throughout the holiday season along with our festive Christmas décor!


If you've visited us lately, you may have caught our Sparks Street BIA Elves hard at work decking our lamp posts, Christmas trees, and street itself with all kinds of festive lights and greenery! Even our Shed is showcasing holiday cheer! Our trees are up along the blocks wrapped warmly in glowy lighting, complimenting the sprinkle of lights on our lamp post garlands and our newest additions to the street!


We've partnered with Classic Displays to bring live-scale, interactive LIT art to Sparks Street! These 3D lighting displays invite you not just to capture their luminescent image, but to be a part of it and strike a pose!


The installations include two Archways, a Star Stack, a perfectly instagrammable Frame, a Gift Box, an Ornament, and of course, a Christmas Tree! These illuminated displays are creating a real Christmas energy on the street!


START your Winter Wander with our #CocoaCrawl to keep your mitts warm and make your way through Christmas Lights Across Canada! Stroll in The Garden of the Provinces and Territories which will lead you right up towards Lyon and Sparks where our Honey Locust trees line the South side all year round and are now draped in the multi-coloured lights of many of our childhoods! The festive feels continue all the way down to Elgin Street where you'll find the new 3D interactive displays along your walk!


Bonus: Our OT_AWA Letters are currently illuminated Green and are another must-stop see where you can 'Be the T'!

The fun festive installations will be on the street from NOW until January 7th 2022, running throughout Canadian Heritage's annual Christmas Lights Across Canada, complimenting their 'Pathway of Lights' trails which run all around Sparks Street! The Multimedia Projection on Parliament Hill December 8, 2021 - January 7, 2022 is literally a BLOCK away!



Some of our visitors have already snapped the first pics with our Holiday Displays!!
