LaSalle Holiday Lights Heritage Nights graphic

The Town of LaSalle is excited to host the annual Holiday Lights Heritage Nights event at the LaSalle Civic Centre at 5950 Malden Road from November 25, 2022, to January 8, 2023. This beautiful outdoor light display will transform the area into a magical outdoor walk-through holiday wonderland, including numerous ornamental and holiday lighting displays and a forty-foot-tall walk-through tree.

The lights will be on daily from 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm.

Sensory hour is from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm daily, and the music will be turned off during this time. Accessible parking is available in our designated lot. The walkways throughout the concourse are also accessible. Washroom facilities are available.

Holiday Night Market Sundays - New Location!

The Holiday Sunday Night Markets will be held at the Event Centre at 970 Front Road allowing for many more vendors than last year selling homemade, handmade, and local products. Vendors will have the opportunity to be one of the first groups to participate in an event in this new unique space.

Additional parking is available at the Riverdance Building and the LaSalle Boat Ramp at the corner of Front Road and Laurier Drive. It is a short walk from the additional parking lot to the Event Centre. Guests can be dropped off at the Event Centre before parking.
