Magic of Lights – Takes place all through the holiday season. Magic of Lights is comprised of festive and vibrant LED lighted displays celebrating the joy of the holidays. A “drive through” experience from the comfort of your own car, the Wesley Clover Parks Campground route will be overflowing with spectacular light displays and animations where holiday themes will come to life in sparkling lights.  Magic of Lights is truly a holiday family tradition and will be for years to come. Select proceeds from each carload admission will once again benefit the Ottawa Senator’s Foundation, last year’s event raised over $47,000 for this very deserving charity! Pile everyone in the car and bring them out to see the lights! While you’re there have a look at Crystal Beach and Lakeview Park where we have a great listing at 4 Brookbend Crescent!
