About Light Up The Hills 

Light Up the Hills Chair, Gerry Kentner, envisioned a tree covered in sparkling lights to be shared with the whole community. A "Tree of Hope".

Yes! The lights are on for our 13th annual winter lighting festival in our 3 parks in Halton Hills!  

There is no charge to visit any of the parks and you do not need to make a reservation. We ask that you limit your groups to under 10 people and wear masks.

This year, more than ever, we all need these illuminated displays to give us a sense of community, a feeling of joy, a reason for hope and a simple smile on your face in these difficult times.

Due to COVID-19 , we had to cancel our large December 1st Ignition Opening Ceremony event BUT ALL OUR LIGHTS ARE ON FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER AS NORMAL!

In April, Light up the Hills illuminated  our three Trees of Hope  to support and show our appreciation to our front line workers. These Trees have become a Beacon of Hope and will remain lit 24/7 indefinitely.


We have Three Trees of Hope. Come and join us for ignition night in Georgetown, Acton or Glen Williams.​ Or all three! ​
