Toronto Light Fest 2018

The Distillery District is booming again as #tolightfest takes over from the recent Toronto Christmas Market. And instead of a reindeer with a nose that glows there is a dragon that belches flames. This festival is free to enter but parking, if you are lucky enough to find it, is $2.25 an hour. And believe you me, the tight quarters and too many cars make this area hard to traverse while looking for a precious spot to open up, so park somewhere else and walk to the district.

"During the cold, dark days of winter, City residents will be drawn out of their traditional indoor habitats to experience Toronto in a way they never have before."
A number of luminous art installations are spread throughout the historic Victorian industrial neighborhood including a piano that plays light, a pyramid, seven monks and lasers. Light sculptures, fixed and changing, are mixed among the stores and restaurants of this unique section of downtown Toronto. The festival is on from January 19 to March 4, 2018 starting each day at sundown and ending at 10pm every day but Sunday, which ends at 9pm. The festival directors say that they created the event to help winter not suck as much!
