Although the Christmas season will be over, you can ring in 2020 by exploring the wonders of the night for free.\nFrom January 17 to March 1, 2020, visitors can enjoy the beauty of illuminating light displays across the district.\nThe Festival's website states: "In a world with so many dark and ominous messages, our goal was to create a positive, magical urban oasis where people of all ages and backgrounds could and would enjoy together."\nNow heading into its third year, the fest brings stunning works to life through magical displays as you walk past. Some of the exhibits might leave you in awe.\nThe winter season can be a rough one with the brisk cold and dark nights but the Light Fest aims to get people to enjoy the season and bring life back into the 6ix.\nAccording to the website, the festival exhibits local and international artists that live for lights.\nThese pieces are meant to educate, warm hearts, and inspire, and it certainly brings some winter magic to the Distillery District.\nView this post on Instagram SNOW WARNING ❄️ Due to the extreme storm warning in #Toronto, #tolightfest will not be operating tonight #ONStorm A post shared by Toronto Light Festival (@tolightfest) on Feb 12, 2019 at 11:05am PST\nThere are a few light festivals popping up across Ontario but people don't seem to mind braving the cold to catch beautiful works of art.\nAnd at this particular one, you can simply stroll through the place and get lost in the displays.
