Downtown Oakville’s Towne Square
Downtown Oakville’s Towne Square boasts a gorgeous tree of lights this year, and Lakeshore Road is lined with matching lights, and you’ll also find some great photo ops in Centennial Square (if front of the Oakville Centre of Performing Arts at Lakeshore and Navy St), which has another gorgeous tree, a 3D illuminated ornament and an archway of lights – all perfect for an evening stroll while you sip something warm from one of the many nearby shops!
Coronation Park offers a drive through tour of the park, which is lit up with loads of festive and colourful lights – a magical site to behold for the whole family!
While this year may not be what we’re used to, you can still find ways to feel festive and best safe at the same time. We hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday season, a Merry Christmas and a 2021 full of happiness, health and lots of success!
