Toronto Light Festival

The Toronto Light Festival is back, for its third year in a row, at the Distillery District. With contributions from over twenty-two local and international artists, there’s so much to see. While some displays are there for aesthetic purposes, making it great for photos, others are actually informal. One educational installation to look out for, is the giant 35-foot tall polar bear. Entitled “Longview” by Don Kennell, this structure is constructed out of car hoods, representing how the carbon footprint affects habitats.

Yes, the light festival does take place during some of the coldest months; however, conveniently, the Distillery District is full of coffee shops and even a Cacao 70, if you’re craving chocolate or are just trying to temporarily escape the cold.

  

The best part about the Toronto Light Festival is that it is free to check out! The festival will be running from January 18 to March 3 and hours are from 6:00 PM to 11 PM.
