Ottawa Lumière Festival

The official web site is www.lumiereottawa.com
The Festival of Light is for people to come together for a night of enjoyment. Whether you are a child, teen or a senior, this Festival will AMAZE you, mostly because of the imaginative lanterns that have created from some tissue paper and bamboo. Children are delighted to be part of the magic as they proudly carry their very own lantern. Stanley Park becomes a magical ocean of light with professional musical, theatrical and dance performances. If you only visit one festival I would suggest this one over all the others.
