Hfour will be illuminating Queen Elizabeth Park with vibrant projections and multicoloured lanterns. The illumination will be set up for unobstructed views ideal for photography and picnicking in the spring evening air under cherry blossoms! This year we are featuring dance performances choreographed by Heather Laura Gray, and a musical soundscape by Adham Shaikh. Best of all, it’ll be free!

The Inspiration for Spring Lights *A Canada 150 Celebration Event
Spring Lights is an inter-arts collaboration and presentation of local artists using the transcendent experience of a cherry blossom backdrop to communicate themes of time, ephemerality, and beauty.

The project runs for two evenings telling the story of Canada’s evolution as a cultural mosaic through digital media art, dance and music to be developed. Spring Lights celebrates Vancouver’s diverse ethnic communities and our historic, destination park – Queen Elizabeth Park. Like the pioneers before us, audiences will explore the exciting cherry blossom landscape and light, on their self-discovery of the history of Canadian culture.
