Cavalacade of Lights: Greektown
Posted 15/Dec/2006 02:45:00
Toronto's Greek community always does things in a big way and the
Greek Town Cavalcade of Lights display is no different. While some
neighbourhoods are content to simply affix some festive lights to
their lampposts, the Danforth gets some special treatment at a
community meeting place.
While the lights that hang over the main thoroughfare along Danforth
Avenue feature blue and white lights made to look like olive
branches, it's the fountain in Alexander the Great parkette at the
corner of Logan and Danforth that is the hilight of the display.
Covered in energy-efficient blue LED lights, the fountain, which by
day is a great location to sip a coffee or people watch, looks as if
it is flowing, and the surrounding trees are decorated with blue and
white lights in a longer shape that look like leaves.
This is truly one of the most striking displays of the whole festival
and definitely worth a visit if you're in Greek Town enjoying a nice dinner.
