2. Lakeshore Road, Port Credit

3. Streetsville Village Square
LOCATION: 1 Main Street, Streetsville
In the heart of the village of Streetsville at Main Street and Queen Street stands a bright and gorgeous Christmas tree. Grab a hot chocolate and walk along Queen Street to take in the dazzling decorated businesses.
4. Mississaugua Golf and Country Club
LOCATION: 1725 Mississauga Road
Located on Mississauga Road just north of the QEW, the Mississaugua Golf & Country Club is a historical location that incorporated in 1906. Their Tudor style clubhouse and grounds are dressed beautifully for the season.
5. Hillside Drive & Vail Court, Streetsville
LOCATION: South of Thomas Street, North of Erin Centre Blvd.
Over on Vail Court, there is a good chance this home can be viewed from space! There is a projection Santa Claus in the window, lights covering the whole house and even the front lawn is decorated with polar bears, snowmen and more!
6. Hurontario Street Tree Wraps
LOCATION: Hurontario Street between Robert Speck Pkwy & Matthews Gate
Take a drive or walk down Hurontario Street near Square One to check out the festively decorated trees. The fun, fringed trees are a collaboration between the Mississauga Public Art Program and Parks & Forestry Division. Each winter, the trees are wrapped in burlap to protect them from the harsh winter then decorated for the winter season. This year’s theme is in celebration of Canada 150 “Brilliance Together.”
This years display was created by Amy Mailloux and Tony Di Nardo and is entitled CANcolours 150.
7. Your own neighbourhood
LOCATION: Right outside your front door!
The weather outside may be frightful but the sights are so delightful, so bundle up and hit the streets of your neighbourhood. Maybe your house is the best on the street, or it will spark a competitive nerve in you for next year!
