Our 2018 event was featured in Tourism Calgary’s ‘Christmas Lights in Calgary’ blog, highlighting the best places to see Christmas lights in December:


2019’s event will be even bigger: more lights and more activities between the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site and the East Coulee School Museum!  There is nearly zero ambient light pollution in our part of the Drumheller Valley, meaning our Christmas lights twinkle against an incredible star-filled sky.  A truly unique rural Albertan experience!
