For the past decade, audiences throughout the Greater Toronto Area have come together under the White Big Top to marvel at “Cavalia” and “Odysséo,” two spectacular shows that have been seen by millions of people around the world.
Now, the creators of “Cavalia” are back with their newest masterful production that is set to light up the Mississauga night sky: illumi — A Dazzling World of Lights. illumi makes its debut this month with an extraordinary outdoor light show that is the first of its kind in the GTA and the largest light, sound, and multimedia show on the planet.
Children and adults alike will be captivated as they embark on this spectacular walking journey through 14 magical worlds across 600,000 square feet — a space as large as 10 football fields.
illumi — A Dazzling World of Lights is brought to life by cutting-edge programming technologies and features high-definition projections, jaw-dropping, state-of-the-art animatronic creatures, thousands of light structures, and more than 20 million twinkling LED bulbs.
“We are incredibly excited to call Mississauga the new home of illumi and spark the imagination, curiosity, and emotions of people of all ages across Ontario and beyond,” says Normand Latourelle, creator of illumi by Cavalia. “We are deeply proud of the immersive worlds we have created — all with the intent to bring people together to experience joy and wonderment in a unique, magical, and mesmerizing setting.”
illumi offers visitors the chance to take an epic journey around the world as they travel along a spectacular route through these imaginative universes, like The Infinite Poles, a frozen landscape of penguins, whales, and igloos, and an infinite forest of sparkling stalagmites.
In The Colourful Animal Kingdom, enjoy a safari of lights with some of the world’s most majestic animals and, in The Cavalia Horses, mingle among a colossal herd of 200 Cavalia horses that nod to Cavalia’s equine origins,
illumi is designed to provide visitors with a once-in-a-lifetime experience through not only the exquisite sights, but also the soundtrack of each space. These never-before-seen installations with original imagery, breathtaking scenery, and technological displays are widespread throughout the grounds, meaning there is no shortage of photo and video opportunities. illumi is likely to be the most Instagrammable event on Earth, with endless possibilities to share your experiences with friends and family on social media and beyond.
The inventive and surprising concepts of illumi will also feature seasonal changes, including Halloween and holiday displays, giving you plenty of reasons to come back for multiple experiences throughout the season and all this for about the price of a movie ticket.
