The Downtown Windsor BIA kicked off the Downtown Light Show Friday evening that will see mainstreet commercial properties will be a resplendent canvas of light every night, dazzling visitors and residents.

“We’re sure this will be a feast for the eyes,” says Ward 3 Councillor Rino Bortolin. “The intention is to transform the downtown into a kind of wonderland.”

The impetus for the Downtown Light Show was the City of Windsor’s $20,000 contribution to each of the area’s nine BIA’s following the cancellation this year of Bright Lights Windsor, and has been further supported by the generosity of LiUNA! YUNITY.

Featuring LED colour washes and gobos, the show will illuminate properties on Ouellette Avenue from Tuscarora Street to Riverside Drive, and Maiden Lane West, with light motifs scattered across Ouellette at two locations – one north of Maiden Lane and the other at Tuscarora.

“The light show is definitely dazzling, and it’s important to note that it’s an inclusive, inviting and safe activity for people of all ages,” adds DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans. “It’s been a tough year for us all, and we’re excited to invite families and individuals to brighten their holidays and add some festive cheer to downtown Windsor.”

The show will go on nightly until January 17th.
