A few photos from the OPG Winter Festival of Lights

    No Comments

    Last night the family went for a brief drive along the Niagara Parkway to check out the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights. It is the first time I’ve seen all of the lights at night. They look excellent. There are a lot more than there used to be.

    One strange thing is related to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. There was some kind of promotion/sponsorship because of the movie, and you can get paper/plastic glasses to wear. When you put them on, the lights look like there are ninja turtles around them. Like this:

    I mentioned this to someone and wondered what this had to do with Christmas. The person said that the Disney displays didn’t really have anything to do with Christmas either. Very true.

    Dufferin Islands has some new displays. I made a simple animated gif of one display that shows a bird taking off/flying.

    Along the hill/escarpment by the Skylon Tower, some lights have been put out that flash intermittently, so it looks like the hill is twinkling.

    Here are some other photos I took:
