saturday December 15th
Promise at the Cavalcade of Lights
Nathan Philips Square, 6 to 10pm

We're really happy to be invited by the City to contribute to their Cavalcade of Lights event by arranging djs to bookend live bands they're bringing in. It's a great idea - mixed with fireworks, lighting, and skating outdoors in the heart of our city.

The rink at Nathan Phillips Square is absolutely huge and the weather's been nice and cold for making ice, so conditions should be great. Bundle up, bring a thermos of hot chocolate and someone's hand to hold - it'll be a nice start to a romantic evening.

The djs are interspersed in with 2 live bands - the Golden Dogs are punky and ska infused electro rock, and In Flight Safety have a sweet moodiness to their guitars and come from Halifax.

6.00 Ted Dancin' (deep disco)
7.00 In Flight Safety
7.45 Rollin' Cash (break beats and scratch)
8.15 Golden Dogs
9.00 Fireworks
9.10 Nick and Pierre (deep funk)

The night coincides with Toronto's Burning Man group's annual Santarchy, where a jolly group dress up as Santa Clauses and go from Dundas Square through to Nathan Philips Square and on along Queen Street for a pub crawl. We'll have fun with all the Santas on their way through.

Some history of Cavalcade of Lights:
This event has an impressive 40 year history. It was created in 1967 to showcase Toronto's newly constructed City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square.

Cavalcade of Lights traditionally falls on the final weekend of November to kick off the holiday season with the official illumination of the square and giant christmas tree. Since 2002 it has transformed from a one night format to a month long holiday celebration with the addition of saturday night skating parties to live music at the outdoor rink.

This year is under the direction of Canadian designer Brian Gluckstein, and the theme is 'Enchanted Holiday'. The architecture of City Hall, Toronto's Official Christmas Tree, and the surrounding structures will be lit with 300,000 LED lights in the colours of red, green and white along with the trees throughout the landscape illuminated as if in bloom.

At 9pm catch the highlight of the night - a fireworks display in the sky above the square.


See you round the rink on saturday.
