During your visit, you'll cross into an illuminated tunnel that'll transport you to a Christmas playground complete with elves, lit-up trees, and other giant decorations including a 25-foot-tall Christmas tree.

There is also a traditional Christmas market, so you can buy your gifts early. VERY early.

Blainville residents have even decorated their homes with Christmas lights to really immerse visitors in the Christmas spirit.

The site is open by reservation only during three time slots: 8:30 p.m., 9:15 p.m. or 10 p.m. You will have 45 minutes to stroll the area and take in all the wonderful sights.
