Lumière outdoor festival: Sat 18 August (Ottawa)
This is great fun and highly recommended!
The Lumière Festival, presented each year by the CCCC , is a month of festivities leading towards the magical Evening of Light Celebration held every year within the month of August!
This year the enchanted Evening of Light Celebration will take place August 18th, beginning at 5pm in Stanley Park/New Edinburgh Park.
Through lantern-making and performance workshops, and community outreach initiatives
Lumière encourages people to come together and share their own creations and view the creations of others in a celebration of light and community.
The Lumière Evening of Light Celebration will enthrall you whether on your own, with friends or with family; a teen or a senior. From the lanterns on display, to the labyrinth, to the performers and music-all illuminated by only lantern and lamplight, Lumière will hold you in its spell. Come re-discover the night and the magic of light!
Young children are eager to be part of the magic, fairy wings bumping behind them as they proudly carry their very own lanterns. Costumes are encouraged and a visit to the on-site Transformation Tent can add a little sparkle to tiny visitors evening.
