It’s a Festivus miracle!

Tickets for the D-Tours usually sell out quickly, but, by some divine act, there are still a few tickets left! Hakuna Matata all night long as you travel magic school bus style to some of the Motor City’s hidden and not-so-hidden gems. There will be four stops along the way for our guests to imbibe.

The WindsorEats D-Tour, (get it? detour?) will allow easy access for you to visit some iconic local hangouts in Detroit without the need to drive, allowing you time to focus on a good time.

The tour will start at 6:30 p.m and bring you back to Windsor at approximately midnight.

The bars are a secret and there’s a karaoke machine on the bus. Ya, we went there. Tickets are $40 per person.

Starting December 7, 2018

Bright Lights Windsor is back to entertain families young and old alike.
This year, there’s three times more illumination and four times more displays; a holiday market with artisans, food and entertainment; and the pathways lined with thousands of lights have all been paved. So, our tradition has been improved.

The festivities are every night from 5:30pm to 10:00pm beginning December 7 through to January 6 at Jackson Park in Windsor, Ontario. The Opening Lighting Ceremony will take place December 7 at 6:30pm.

If you haven’t heard, WindsorEats will be on site every Friday and Saturday in December cooking up some gourmet waffles on a stick. Flavours will rotate each weekend.
