Huge festival of lights opens its doors to the dogs in Mississauga once again

Mississauga’s huge festival of lights is once again going to the dogs — but not at all in a bad way.
In fact, the popular attraction that’s been set up in north Mississauga for more than a year now, the renowned illumi–A Dazzling World of Lights, has already hosted several successful Doggie Nights and it’s anticipating another success story this time around.
The next Doggie Night is scheduled for this Sunday, starting at 5:15 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to bring along their furry, four-legged pals to enjoy the attraction with them.
Having proven popular with its human audience, the lights festival continues to open the gates for one night at a time to people and their dogs (one dog per two guests). Those without dogs are also welcome on Sunday night.
“As you explore illumi’s 600,000-square-foot lot, your dogs will be pampered with treats, refreshing water and an exhilarating outdoor walk. Meanwhile, you will be treated to a magical experience with tons of opportunities to take cute pictures with your pup, including a doggie red carpet,” illumi officials said in advance of one of the earlier Doggie Nights.
The renowned illumi–A Dazzling World of Lights attracted several hundred thousand visitors during its first run in Mississauga from September 2022 through this past April 10. After summer- and Halloween-themed runs in recent months, the attraction is now into its second autumn run in the city.
Illumi is located on a large north Mississauga site near Hurontario Street and Highway 407 that’s equal in size to 10 football fields.
An illumi spokesperson said earlier this year that the company is working closely with the City of Mississauga to keep the attraction in town “potentially until 2026-27.”
Scheduled to come to Mississauga on several occasions since late 2021, the illumi festival of lights finally opened in the city on Sept. 14, 2022.
