Vancouver winter: grey, rain, dreary clouds filling dreary skies. Illuminate Yaletown promises to fight the gloomy winter skies by lighting the crap out of them! When I heard the name Illuminate Yaletown, I first thought UFC was coming back to town & foiled shirts would once again sparkle the streets like oversized, lumpy muscled disco balls. You can imagine how relieved I was to hear its real meaning.
After it’s year hiatus, this free public event returns to Vancouver & features talented artists showing off interactive light displays & other forms of contemporary art. The festival runs Friday & Saturday night, & features a photo contest in collaboration with the event. Celebrate the anniversary of the Winter Olympics this weekend & relive some of magic from this time last year.
