The heartland of Muskoka may be known for outdoor adventures and peaceful cottage getaways, but the region’s newest attraction may be its best yet. Opening in November 2021, Eclipse Walk With Light is a brand-new Huntsville Light Festival featuring dazzling displays across the Muskoka Heritage Place. With 18,000 individual lights and several awe-inspiring installations, Eclipse Walk With Light is on par with anything you’d find in the big city. 

Here are just some of the best displays to see at the best Huntsville Light Festival. Eclipse Walk with Light runs until May 72022

Huntsville Light Festival Installations

There are numerous stunning displays present at Eclipse Walk with Light. The five main installations are based on themes of time and space with colourful light displays accompanied by music and ethereal soundscapes. Crystalline captures the momentary, fragile perfection of a snowflake while Awaken aims to bring a taste of spring mornings to the depths of winter. Enter the Sundial and contemplate the enormity of time. Meanwhile, Twilight and Moonlight both invite visitors to consider the transitory splendour of the long night’s journey towards day. Together, they make up a five-stop circuit around the breadth of the Muskoka Heritage Place with colourful, lighted paths leading from one installation to the next.
