See-Worthy: The Toronto Light Festival
After a remarkably dark January (meteorologically speaking), it’s only natural to crave a little light. From now until March 12, you can get your fix at the Distillery Historic District’s Toronto Light Festival.
Boasting 21 light art installations, the festival transforms the historic neighbourhood into one of the largest open-air galleries in Canada.
“We wanted to create something special and something that will lift the collective spirit of the city,” says Mathew Rosenblatt, creator and executive director of the Toronto Light Festival. “We literally want to bring people out of the dark and into the light, to interact with and explore the city in a way they never have before.”
Admission to the Toronto Light Festival is free, although two interactive installations encourage donations to the Yonge Street Mission and the Daily Bread Food Bank.
