Just as Toronto is entering the middle of winter, and days are short and dark, the Distillery District is set to be lit up with a spectacular display of lights.

The first-ever Toronto Light Festival is kicking off Jan. 27 with thousands of lights on exhibit throughout the Distillery's pedestrian-focused streets. 

The event, which is being organized by the folks behind the Toronto Christmas Market, is going to include glowing creations of every size and type including interactive installations and brilliant light art. 

Toronto Light Festival will run for 45 days until March 12, Sundays to Wednesdays from sundown till 10 p.m. and Thursdays to Saturdays from sundown till 11 p.m. Admission is free.
