Winter Magic Illuminite

The Samba Squad and Circus Orange helped to kick off the #Toronto Downtown Yonge BIA Illuminite Festival at Yonge-Dundas Square. The free holiday lighting ceremony started at 6pm on November 19, 2011 and featured music, lighting of the 45 foot tree (with 52,000 LED lights).

The website says "The fun begins at 6 p.m. with a performance by the Samba Squad. This innovative dance group mixes world rhythms with the sound-power and street-feel of the drums of the Afro-Brazilian Samba tradition.

At 6:30 p.m. witness an explosive fire and pyrotechnics show by the renowned stunt artists, Circus Orange (photo at top). Their performances feature circus stunts, dance, aerial acts, live music, fire and special effects."
