Multimedia projection on Parliament Hill

This year, an entirely new multimedia projection show is offered on Parliament Hill. The presentation combines colourful digital imagery with a captivating soundtrack.

Come live the nocturnal odyssey of luminous sparks that awaken during the Canadian winter solstice. Their mission is to add light to winter evenings. The luminous sparks travel across Canada’s multiple landscapes. As they surmount obstacles, they will get help to achieve their important task.

Will it be possible to give light to winter this year? Come and see the multimedia projection for yourself and for a few moments, let the magic carry you away. Young and old will be filled with wonder as they set out on this extraordinary adventure.
