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 are 30,000 light structures to see out of your car window, including monsters, ghosts, witches — and thousands of pumpkins.Alex Melki | MTL BLog
The three-kilometre driving route has a few widened lanes so cars can slow down.Alex Melki | MTL Blog
Passengers are able to take photos and record videos.Alex Melki | MTL Blog
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.Alex Melki | MTL Blog
A limited number of entries are available per day, per time slot. Tickets must be purchased in advance.Alex Melki | MTL Blog
