The CN Tower Will Have Light Shows Every Night To Brighten The City's Spirits

Like many businesses and venues across Toronto, the CN Tower has closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While you can't visit this iconic landmark until further notice, it'll soon be reaching Torontonians in a whole new way. Next time you're looking out your window at night, you may notice colourful lights coming from the city centre. Toronto's CN Tower light show is happening every evening to brighten spirits across the 6ix.

On March 14, the CN Tower closed its doors with plans to re-open April 14, 2020. 

"The health and safety of our staff, guests, and tenants is always our first priority," the establishment announced in an Instagram post.

Now, the CN Tower has revealed that it will be hosting light shows in an effort to keep spirits high across the city.

Each night, at the "top and bottom of each hour," Toronto's beloved tower will be lit with vibrant colours.

"We're doing our part to brighten the mood," the caption read.

A sneak peek video that was posted on their Instagram shows the tower dancing in rainbows of colour from the top down to the bottom. 

The tower also lit up green and yellow yesterday to celebrate the arrival of spring. 

The light show is one of many efforts put out by businesses and establishments throughout the 6ix to come together in a time of need.

The Spirit of York Distillery in Toronto is using their alcohol to make hand sanitizer instead of booze and is offering it for free to those who can't afford it. 

Mother Cocktail Bar has also transformed into a grocery store that delivers 'pantry boxes' to your door.

Both Harvey's and Swiss Chalet are offering front-line workers 50% off their meals for a week to support their hard work and efforts.

Take a look out your window and see if you can glimpse the CN Tower's light show at the start of each hour.
