Christmas Lights Map
and Light Up the City Contest


The season of lights is almost here, and that means it’s time for the annual Times Colonist Christmas Lights Map. This year, we're partnering with the Greater Victoria Festival Society and IEOA for their Light Up the City contest.

The contest has closed, but we will continue to add lights to the Christmas Lights Map throughout the holidsay season.

You can add your display by filling out the form HERE. (It might take up to a day for submissions to appear, so please be patient!)




Please follow physical-distancing rules and practise safe viewing while out enjoying the lights.

To use the map: Click on a pin to see the address and a photo of the display, if available. Red pins are houses, green apartments, blue businesses, yellow community organizations, and purple First Nations communities. You can zoom in and out using the + and - buttons.

Using a smartphone or other mobile device? You might want to use the Google Maps app — just click on the square icon in the upper right corner.
