The Forestry Farm in Saskatoon has been reclaimed by the BHP Enchanted Forest.
The Saskatoon Zoo Foundation and the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation are putting on the show. It includes a brand-new exhibition of magical forest-themed characters.
The multi-image display is guaranteed to be a hit with the whole family.
The event will attempt to expand on the success of 2020, when 92,000 people came to see the lights, with 40% of them being tourists. It broke the Enchanted Forest’s attendance record.
Admission remains the same this year with it costing $10 per person and vehicles with a maximum of seven people costing $35 for entry. People can pay $30 for an Enchanted car pass at Saskatoon Shoppers Drug Mart or Co-op Food Stores and Gas Bars. Bus passengers pay $5 with the bus driver getting in for free.
All proceeds will benefit the Saskatoon Zoo’s award-winning prairie dog exhibit and the development of the Butterfly House, which will open in the spring. The zoo also intends to rebuild the Affinity Learning Centre and construct a new bear habitat.
The Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation will contribute to the Equip for Excellence Campaign, which will purchase much-needed operating room equipment.
Towards the end of the Holiday Light Tour, there may be a Light Walk.
The Enchanted Forest is open every night from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. until January 9.
