Season delights enchant group travelers in popular tourist destinations across Canada. One of the biggest productions is the Winter Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls, which last year drew one million visitors and 1,000 motorcoaches. A stretch of the Niagara Parkway features more than 120 lighted displays, including 20 Enchantment of Disney displays.

In Edmonton, Fort Edmonton Park, the largest interactive historical park in Canada, stages Christmas Reflections, an evening program with horse-drawn rides and costumed interpreters. Saskatoon’s Enchanted Forest has grown to be Saskatchewan’s top winter tourist attraction, drawing 60,000 visitors to see the 60 lighted displays in Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park.
