Canad Inns Winter Wonderland, a Winnipeg Family Tradition

Canad Inns Winter Wonderland is a partnership with Red River Exhibition Park, offering our community a festive seasonal drive through light display each December and January. The display offers over one million lights and over 26 different themed areas during a 2.5 km drive in the comfort of your car. Along the route, you can stop at the outdoor skating rink to enjoy a family skate or undertake the free horse-drawn sleigh ride on weekends. Admission is by vehicle pass purchased in advance at any Winnipeg Canad Inns Destination Centre or at the gate.

For specific information, visit the Red River Exhibition Park website. (Note: The display is closed on Christmas Day – December 25th.)

It’s a great way to spend quality time with your family and celebrate the season of lights – 3 million watts of them! Canad Inns Winter Wonderland is proud to support two important programs in Manitoba – KidSport Manitoba and the Riverview Health Centre.
