illumi a dazzling world of lights

Over 20 million LED lights spread over 13 distinct themed areas in Mississauga makes a great family experience as illumi continues until January 8, 2023. You can find the bright lights near Hurontario and Derrycrest Drive with free parking and discounted tickets until September 25.

From the illumi pres release, "After raising its White Big Top throughout the Greater Toronto area with its shows Cavalia and Odysséo over the last decade, the creators of Cavalia are ecstatic to return, this time not with their four-legged stars - but instead, with millions and millions of lights! Today, Cavalia announces its new project that will light up the Mississauga night sky with its latest masterful production, illumi - A Dazzling World of Lights. Making its debut this September, the extraordinary light show is the first of its kind in the Toronto market and the largest light, sound, and multimedia show in the world. Kids and adults alike will be captivated as they embark on a spectacular outdoor journey on foot through 13 magical worlds across a 600,000-sq-ft site (equivalent to ten football fields!) located near the intersection of the 407 and Hurontario Street. Brought to life by cutting-edge programming technologies, the immersive illumi universe features high-definition projections, jaw-dropping, state-of-the-art animatronic creatures, thousands of light structures, and over 20 million brilliant LED bulbs."

“We are incredibly excited to call Mississauga the new home of illumi and spark the imagination, curiosity, and emotions of people of all ages across Ontario and beyond,” said Normand Latourelle, Creator and Artistic Director, Cavalia. “We are deeply proud of the immersive worlds we have created – all with the intent to bring people together to experience joy and wonderment in a unique, magical, and mesmerizing setting.”

It is a very impressive art-light installation that you walk through, with opportunities to touch the works, wander through the different universes and sit under the giant tree of lights. It is much better than the typical drive through light show plus there are food trucks and a tent where you can sit and relax under large, illuminated butterflies.
