Event Details:

The full light and sound show operates each night from 6:00pm to 10:00pm, with an additional hour before and after where we showcase the static lights (without the music and flashing lights).

7 nights per week until Sunday January 2, 2022 (weather permitting). Join us at this FREE, family friendly daily event throughout December 2021.

Location: Blockhouse Island Parkway, Brockville (at the base of Market St. West at Water Street)

River of Lights is a COVID-19 safe 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 first and final hours each night display a static light show (no music), while between 6:00pm and 10:00pm each night the light and sound show will run in a loop, making the trees dance with lights as a mix of contemporary music and classic holiday tunes entertain you.

Please practice all necessary health and safety guidance while on the event grounds.
