As the pandemic continues to force the cancellation of activities, and the days get progressively shorter (and darker), this winter we’re encouraging you ALL to #leavethelighton

We plan to illuminate this great municipality and we want you to be a part of the safe harbour we are proud to call home.
The holidays may feel a little different this year, but we want to ensure that they look better than they ever have.
Plenty of new light installations will be on display throughout the municipality from November through March and we hope you’ll join us by shining your bright light as well!

Be sure to see below for additional details including sponsorship opportunities and self guided tours.

This initiative is a partnership of the Municipality of Kincardine, Kincardine & District Chamber of Commerce & Lakeside Downtown Kincardine BIA.
