Lights on Broadway

Some of the crowd around last year's lighting

Day 2 of Manyfest today! And the weather looks just as pefect as it did yesterday, yay!

Today there’s lots happening, but I wanted to talk about one of my favourite parts of the whole event – Lights on Broadway. Last year was a magical experience, with more thousands of Winnipeggers strolling the boulevard under lit trees, carrying candles themselves. There was such a glow to the whole place!

There were three lighting companies there last year with displays Winnipeggers could vote on to help choose who would create a future permanent lighting display for the boulevard. Last year’s winner was Epic, and they’re back now with three possible design concepts lighting up the trees that we can wander through tonight! The lights are going to be switched on when it gets dark, but if you want to be one fo the people holding the candles you might want to come down a bit earlier – it’s first come first served!
