Toronto Light Festival in the Distillery District

A beacon of light came to town with the first annual #TOlightFest in the historic Toronto neighbourhood with "a new visual journey and imaginative cerebral experience. During the dark, cold days of winter, our hope is that city residents will be drawn out of their traditional indoor habitats to experience Toronto in a way they never have before." Angels of Freedom by the OGE Group from Isreal made people seem so heavenly and peace filled the air as people posed under the halos framed by large wings.
 A pair of crouching Digital Origami Tigers sat on Tank House Lane created by LAVA, an Australian network of creative minds, began their display during 2010 Chinese New Year, were adopted by the WWF to bring attention to Tigers, and now make people happy in Toronto.

The lights will be on from January 27 to March 12, 2017 with twenty one installations spread throughout the district, both on the ground and in the air. Torontonians have flocked to the area to see the light - so take public transit if possible.

Playing high above the roads paved in bricks are a series of dancers that light up the night with their real-time animations.  Inspired by Burning Man and the artist's experiences at the famous desert festival, author Kyle Ruddick brings the movement of dance to Toronto.
