Canadaâ€™s CN Tower â€“ touted as the worldâ€™s tallest building at 553m (1,815 ft) â€“ will go on a spectacular light show on Thursday, June 28. The event will inaugurate the new architectural illumination of the tower and kick off Canada Day weekend.
The CN Tower will be lighted with a programmable LED lighting system that is both energy efficient and cost effective to maintain.
Organizers say the innovative lighting system presents a more vibrant Tower while using less energy than former conventional lighting systems. 1,330 fixtures each no larger than a shoebox replace conventional fixtures the size of washing machines. Capable of millions of colors and effects, it will be used to elegantly illuminate the national icon and internationally recognized symbol of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The gigantic LED light show is set at 10pm and will last about ten minutes. The official lighting ceremony starts at 9pm.
Afterwards, the Tower will be lit each night from dusk until 1am and will feature occasional thematic programming during national holidays, special occasions and citywide events.
