When deciding how to spend the Saturday night last week, my friends and I decided to go and see the Cavalcade of Lights. Some of us were reluctant to do that, as we thought that watching lighting of the Christmas tree is for kids, as are fireworks. The Nathan Phillips square was so crowded, you could hardly move through the crowd. And there was no way to go up to the Christmas tree, so we watched it from quite a distance. It was so noisy there, that we couldn’t hear the concert that was being played there. You could tell someone was singing a song but no way to tell who it was or what song it was.
And then they started the fireworks. Oh, my God! What a marvelous show! I have seen a lot of fireworks before but nothing like this one. The City Hall was beautifully lit and the fireworks were accompanied with special lighting effects and music. The colors, the shapes of the fireworks, the choreography… everything was just awesome!
I know that up close the Christmas tree is very beautiful, as I saw it last year days after they lit it. And now I know that I’m going to see the Cavalcade of Lights every year, as there is no way I will miss such a spectacular show.
