Nights of Fire

Gord and I had supper tonight at the Keg (thanks to a gift certificate from our neighbours, Jasmine and Grant). The meal and service were fabulous!

Then we walked to City Hall because the Winter City Festival is happening (it started last night and runs 'til February 7).

The Nights of Fire was really neat!

Experience the enchantment of Nights of Fire, magically created by Cie Carabosse, France's acclaimed fire art troupe in Toronto for their North American premiere.

Fuel the flames of your imagination as you wander among intricate sculptures of metal, clay and fire that will transform Nathan Phillips Square into a wonderland of warmth and light.

The gentle illumination of the entire square will unfold over three hours as clay pots are individually lit until 1500 burn in unison, radiating heat and reflective beauty across the urban landscape.

Haunting musical performances will accompany the fire installation, delicately enhancing the magic and wonder of the flames.

"On nights of fire, the audience discovers a magic previously unexplored. Eyes reflect the sparkle in the flames, and minds open to the surrounding beauty. Soak in the images and experience the emotions. Reflect. Absorb. Enjoy."

That Nights of Fire must have been a spectacular event judging from the photos you shared.
