You Can Drive Through A Halloween Village Made Of 15-Million Lights At Illumi In Laval

The dazzling spooky season display opens October 9.

It's spooky season! And while we're limited in how we can celebrate, there's a "red-zone safe" activity opening today that is nothing short of spectacular: the Halloween edition of Illumi's "dazzling world of lights" in Laval.

Due to COVID-19, the "magical nocturnal adventure" — which is basically a sprawling, glowing village made of lights with a Halloween touch — is only available for viewing by car.

But with 15-million festive LED bulbs to take in, this could be one of the coolest drive-through experiences available to Montrealers this month.

Check it out before November 1 when the exhibit changes themes and colours for the winter holiday season.

There's even a whole wild west scene which doesn't exactly scream Halloween — unless you watch West World... in which case it might be the scariest of them all.
