The holiday season is just around the corner, which means planning a trip to Cornwall is definitely a good idea. Cornwall comes alive during the holidays, owing to its many holiday-themed attractions and activities. From the annual Santa Claus Parade to an amazing lights festival just west of the city, you can’t go wrong if you’re spending the holidays in Cornwall. 

Alight at Night at Upper Canada Village

Upper Canada Village is back with their annual holiday-themed event, Alight at Night.  Alight at Night is Eastern Ontario’s biggest outdoor lights festival and is scheduled to begin November 28.  Alight at Night guests are invited to embark on an enchanting winter stroll filled with over a million lights.  Lights are hung everywhere from trees and fences to heritage buildings.  Ultimately, it is the perfect winter wonderland experience, and it’s less than half an hour from Cornwall.

Downtown Shopping

The holiday season is upon us, which means now is the time to start shopping.  Luckily, Cornwall is filled with fabulous shopping centres and independent shops.  Cornwall Square is the main mall and it has a ton of stores, including Foot Locker, EB Games, Coles, Urban Planet, and Cleo. At the corner of Tollgate and Brookdale, you’ll also find several retail stores, like Best Buy, Winners, Sport Chek and Sally’s Beauty Supply.

Santa Claus Parade

Cornwall’s annual Santa Claus Parade is back for yet another year. Taking place on November 28 from 4:30 pm until 9:30 pm, this evening parade is happening in the Cornwall Civic Complex Parking Lot.  Unlike previous years, Cornwall’s Santa Claus Parade will be a drive-thru event, in order to ensure everyone stays safe from COVID-19.  The event will see cars travelling along a defined route, and looking out at the stationary holiday floats and displays from their car windows.

If you’re planning a visit to Cornwall this holiday season, then you’ll want to reserve a room at the Ramada by Wyndham Cornwall.  We offer comfortable accommodation, luxury amenities, and an unbeatable location near some of the top holiday activities and attractions in the city.
