Each holiday season London residents and visitors can stroll through
Victoria Park and enjoy the glittering display of lights that create our
city's Winter Wonderland. In addition to more than 75,000 lights
decorating park trees, there are a variety of displays including Santa
and his reindeer, tin soldiers, a jack-in-the-box and the nativity.
Last November, hundreds of children entered the "Name
the Festive Train Contest " during the the annual Lighting of the
Lights. Of the more than 200 entries received, the Parks and Recreation
judging committee narrowed the decision down to their three favourite train names.
Voting took place online and the winning name is the Candy Cane Coach.
all those good little boys and girls who need to get their wish list to
the North Pole, there is Santa's mailbox.
The final evening for the lights to shine is January 1 following the
culmination of the Forest City's holiday festivities -
