River of Lights 2021 event

The River of Lights is a free holiday light display on Blockhouse Island which includes thousands of twinkle lights and flood lights set to music. Set your car radio to 88.1FM and enjoy the show from the comfort of your vehicle.

The light and sound show runs nightly from November 27 to January 2 from 6pm-10pm in a loop, making the trees dance with lights and a mix of contemporary music and classic holiday tunes to entertain you. A static light display (without the music and flashing lights) will be on for an hour before and after the full musical display (from 5-6pm and 10-11pm each night). 

Want to enjoy a warm drink and snacks in your car while you watch the show? Check our website for details on our River of Lights restaurant add-on program!

If you are staying in your car to watch the show, please remember to turn your headlights off.
