Cavalcade of Lights

Philips Square in Toronto

That was lovely tradition in Toronto to have Cavalcade of Lights for four weekends prior Christmas. Unfortunately, for few last years that event takes place only once by the Holiday season. Toronto people love that picturesque show and Phillips Square where that happen usually full of citizens and guests of the city. The Firework firing from the roof of the City Hall an all building is under the fire and smoke. Sounds of Firework and Music from the stage at the feet of building, people wowing, applauding and laughing everywhere create excitement and even ecstatic in this whole organism. With the last volley it gains its highest level. Suddenly everything comes down like nothing happened few minutes ago. It is saddest moment of the event. Another year has to pass  to get that half an hour emotional energy charge.

  5. It looks spectacular and certainly lots of people are out enjoying the lights and fireworks. I suppose it is a costly event for the city but it would be nice to extend it over a couple of weekends wouldn’t it?

    • Unfortunately, everything today shrinks because of lack of money in the city, province or even state budget. But at least we still have that event. Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comments.
