Experience the beauty of the Spectacle of Lights

Witness four stunning illuminated sights come alive this holiday season during the Spectacle of Lights on Toronto’s Waterfront from Saturday, November 28, 2015 through Friday, January 1, 2016.

The spiral tree at The Westin Harbour Castle Hotel, the fire truck and snowflake motif at the fire hall, new fully animated music notes, harps and canopy at the Music Garden and the Tall Ship on the Amsterdam Bridge at Harbourfront Centre will all be shining with super bright energy-efficient LED lights.

“The holiday season doesn’t officially start until the Spectacle of Lights on Toronto’s Waterfront is radiating,” says Carol Jolly, executive director, the Waterfront BIA. “This year, we’re kicking things off with the Shop the Neighbourhood event to help remind Torontonians how shopping locally can make a difference in all our lives.”

The Spectacle of Lights uses 39,250 energy-efficient lights throughout four locations:

  • New for 2015, the Music Garden will showcase expanded decor with super bright, energy-saving LED lights attached to sculpted music-themed frames including a fully lit canopy made up of white LED rope lights now amplified with animation.
  • The fully restored and enhanced Tall Ship on the Amsterdam Bridge (at Simcoe) will use a new generation of animated super bright LED lights.
  • The spiral tree at The Westin Harbour Castle Hotel.
  • The fire truck and snowflake motif at the fire hall.

While taking in the Spectacle of Lights on Toronto’s Waterfront, take advantage of some great deals from local businesses during Shop the Neighbourhood on Saturday, November 28, 2015.

Shop the Neighbourhood is a national initiative that celebrates shopping local and the difference it makes. In neighbourhoods across Canada, people are encouraged to take advantage of exclusive event day deals to help raise awareness of the importance local businesses play in our communities.

Shopping local creates jobs, neighbourhood prosperity and keeps dollars close to home.
