Bright Lights to go Ahead Once Again


Windsor's Bright Lights is returning to Jackson Park for a third straight year.

Council has approved spending $177,500 on the set up and tear down of the popular event which drew an estimated 100,000 visitors in 2018.

Set up will begin the week of October 21 with the festival scheduled to run December 6 to January 5.

In 2017, the city spent $1.5-million on the initial set up for the festival and then another $1.5-million in 2018 adding three times more lights and four times more displays.

It costs roughly $300,000 a year to operate the month long event.
