According to its website, the festival spans eight kilometers and millions of lights, all making up displays, light and sound shows, 3D projections, illuminations, and more. Meaning that you're in for one seriously magical, unbelievable time, of course.
Ontario's Winter Festival of Lights is going down November 19 - January 31. Admission is free.
To top off your winter bucket list, add this free holiday village in Ontario, which is well worth the nearly seven-hour road trip from Montreal. It'll make you feel like you've been transported into a Christmas story among the 3 million colourful lights.
The Winter Festival of Lights is back for its 39th edition with its 8-kilometre-long route through the city of Niagara Falls.
The light installations will be in place from November 13, 2021, to February 21, 2022, for 101 nights of magic where you can go for a walk without paying a penny.
This edition is divided into two parts: The first will take place until January 9 with 3D animal structures and installations related to the holidays. After that, the focus will be on winter wonders and the festival of love with new paintings.
Since the location is about seven hours from the city, it's the perfect opportunity to reserve a weekend with your favourite person to enjoy the attraction. The falls and the course will be illuminated from 5 p.m. to midnight, every day including holidays.

Close this article now if you're afraid of the dark. Cornwall, Ontario's former SDG Jail is set to host nighttime ghost and paranormal activity hunts this September and October.

Participants will sit through a "full briefing on the haunted history of the site" — which, according to the company website, includes murders and executions — to set the mood before heading into the 19th-century building to search for any lingering ghouls or lost souls.

There are several starting time slots available, ranging from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

The people behind Flamos Peri Peri Chicken are betting that a new twist on a classic recipe will help them break into Montreal's crowded chicken market.
The brand-new chain restaurant recently opened its first location at 72, boul. Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Châteauguay with a menu inspired by African, South American and European flavours and headlined with a unique and interesting twist on classic piri piri chicken.

By all accounts, Montrealers love their Portuguese-style chicken, grilled to perfection and bathed in piri piri sauce, but set aside those presuppositions when it comes to the uniquely flavoured bird coming out of Flamos' kitchen.
"We have been in the restaurant business for 32 years and have always been challenging ourselves to open different concepts over these years by always being creative, innovative and developing different and great tasting meals that people love," a spokesperson told MTL Blog. "We have succeeded in creating a very unique taste. Our chicken is unlike anything you have ever tried."

Aside from their signature chicken, they're also offering refreshing salads, bowls, sandwiches, a variety of imaginative poutines, and desserts. There's also a selection of sauces and a vegan burger.
But wait, there's more. Don't even think about walking away without an order of Coq Mac n' Cheese, cooked with karaage popcorn chicken, cavatappi pasta, aged cheddar, mozzarella, Parmigiana Reggiano, Grana Padano, green onions, and finished with a drizzle of chipotle aioli sauce.
Flamos Peri Peri Chicken is opening locations in Lachenaie and Terrebonne in August and September, respectively, while Ontarians will be able to enjoy this unique cuisine in Mississauga and Kitchener in the fall, with more restaurants to open next year.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
