Cavalcade of Lights: Downtown Yonge Street
Posted 26/Dec/2006 17:20:00
Yonge Street is by far my favourite display of the Cavalcade of
Lights, and was also the toughest to shoot. The display in Dundas
Square features gorgeous overhead light bursts that change colour,
and lines of lights along the north canopy also flash in sequence.
The tree-like structure made up of a variety of globe-like shapes is
the most striking as it modulates from white to light blue and then a
very dark blue and back to white again.
Over the street, light swags of shades of blue and purple run from
Dundas down to Queen Street West where the Hudson's Bay Company,
although not part of the official event, become a important part of
the display as enormous light grids on the corners of the building
flash video images of snow flakes, holiday messages and the Bay logo
down onto the street.
If you're a holiday curmudgeon still looking for your Christmas
spirit, may I suggest a walk along Yonge Street with a cup of hot
chocolate and some carefully chosen holiday tunes on the ol' MP3
player? Despite the nearby Eaton Centre and the incentive to get all
crazy consumer, it just might be where the Christmas spirit finally
catches up with you.
