Toronto Light Festival 2020

Sparkling light installations return to the historic Distillery District during the January 17 to March 1 festival. What I really like about the free to attend Toronto LightFest is every year the installations change and you get to explore the fascinating neighbourhood, full of alleys with some very interesting stores and galleries, looking for each installation, careful not to miss any that are hidden away or perched high atop the roofs of buildings. My favourite installation this year is the giant sunflower pictured at top.

"The Toronto Light Festival offers a visual journey and a playful adventure throughout the walking streets of The Distillery District. During the cold, dark days of winter, The Toronto Light Festival offers visitors a reason to bundle up, get outside and celebrate the season, creativity and life in the big city. The Festival, now in its fourth year, exhibits local and international light artists. Artworks are curated to educate, warm hearts, inspire or just put a smile on visitors faces."

Some of the installations have been shown at the famous Burning Man festival in one of the deserts of the United States. From Sunday to Wednesday you can see the lights from sundown to 9pm and from Thursday to Saturday they will be on from sundown to 10pm.

See my photos from previous LightFests on the following posts: 2019, 2018 and 2017.
