Scenes from Lumina Borealis

Lumina Borealis, Fort Henry, Kingston, OntarioWhen the first images and accounts of Lumina Borealis emerged in late 2016, we were instantly curious to see if Kingston’s newest winter attraction would live up to the hype. In the early days of the New Year, we braved the cold and took our first steps onto the enchanted trail, where we were inspired by light, warmed by fire, and energized by the large-scale installation’s secrets. Throughout our nighttime journey, we met various other awe-struck visitors who were equally as impressed as we were by Lumina Borealis’ endless beauty and charming surprises. As we rounded the corner to the final chapter of the grand adventure, our experience culminated with an expansive, interactive puzzle, which ultimately unlocked Lumina Borealis’ big reveal.

Created for the St. Lawrence Parks Commission by Moment Factory, Lumina Borealis was inspired by youthful memories spent playing outside in the winter.  From snowball fights, to the scent of a woodstove burning, and walks through a snow-covered forest, Lumina aspires to re-connect you with the season.

Needless to say, Lumina Borealis lives up to the hype, and it is the perfect addition to Fort Henry’s growing arsenal of attractions, which expand the attraction’s programming into the shoulder seasons. With admission at an affordable $12 per person, don’t miss your opportunity to visit the attraction before it closes on Saturday, February 4th.
