Lumiere's multicolour prisms brighten up Vancouver amidst COVID-19 restrictions
Sparkling whale, glittering oak tree all part of the displays around downtown
Vancouver's annual Lumiere event featuring bright, multi-coloured and often interactive light displays looks a little different this year due to COVID-19.
The event, now in its seventh year, is more spread out than previous years and has fewer tactile displays.
The newest installation is a set of large spinning structures, called Prismatica, featured at Jim Deva Plaza at Davie and Bute streets.
Larger displays from previous years like Luna the whale and Davie, a giant grizzly bear, are prominently sited near the beach at English Bay, also in the West End.
The Prismatica displays stand over two metres tall and are laminated with a film that reflects every colour in the visible spectrum.
They're also light enough to spin with your elbows instead of your hands, something organizers are strongly encouraging people to do.
