Chutes Coulonge get lit

The Chutes Coulonge began their Festival of Lights last Saturday night, showcasing around 1,000 lights throughout a kilometre-long trail. A special Christmas-themed poutine is also available, as well as the special Moose Tongue treat.

Those used to the natural wonder that is the Chutes Coulonge are in for a treat all month long, as the park has been lit up with thousands of Christmas lights.
Every Saturday night and for the week after Boxing Day, visitors can enjoy the local tourist attraction as if it were the North Pole, with lights and decorations adorning a kilometre-long trail, and the falls themselves changing colours, too.
“Originally, before we started doing this, I’d come up on Boxing Day with donuts and coffee,” said Dennis Blaedow, a member of the park’s board of directors. “Then we decided to try the Festival of Lights and it’s been a huge success.”
