We’re loving how this city is getting into getting outside – in the coldest of temps! The Toronto Light Fest is the latest event to lure us Torontonians outdoors. Until March 3, 2019, more than 25 art installations by local and international artists are on display along the laneways and public spaces in the Distillery District. There are disco balls, polar bears and lots of moving lights. Some are interactive and all are Instagrammable.

We went on a weeknight after a bite at The Beer Hall (Trip Tip: kids menu + shuffle board!), we spent almost an hour wandering around checking out the art without any crowds in sight. Here are some more views:
