We think the neighbourhood is looking especially bright & festive this year and lots of folks are taking advantage of the mild weather to get out and enjoy the lights.

We’ve put together a “Carlington Light Walk” map to help guide the way but we want to add more sites.

Click on the map to add locations we may have missed (login with your G-mail account) or email us your address and we’ll do it for you.

Come on out and walk the ‘hood! It’s sure to brighten your night!
