The Sights & Sounds of Lumina Borealis


If you’re not a winter-person and prefer to spend the season indoors then we have just the event that will make you get outdoors…Lumina Borealis!

The outdoor show, located at Fort Henry in Kingston, ON,  was created by Moment Factory and includes various exhibits each with its own unique design, theme and use of light & sound.  Lumina Borealis is based on Canada’s Northern Lights, the ‘Aurora Borealis’, and makes use of imagery you would find in our country’s northern parts.

During our recent visit to Fort Henry in Kingston we recorded a video for our Let’s Discover ON YouTube Channel:

If you’re looking for an experience instead of just observing, this is it. The interactive exhibits allows you to do just that.  Whether its walking, singing or throwing balls against a moving target there are several ways to participate instead of just observing.

The entire experience from start to finish was planned with the visitor in mind.  The course itself and the staggered number of visitors based on time of entry were all planned to ensure that visitor have a seamless experience in walking through without ever feeling crowded or rushed. The open-air fire pits, although part of exhibit itself, provided a functional purpose as well…the warmth on a cold winter’s night.
