Over the past couple of days you may have noticed some seriously gorgeous light displays around Montreal.

We’re not talking about the city’s Christmas lights or the 8th edition of Luminotherapie (though we can’t get enough of those either). Rather, we’re referring to the dazzling light projections that have been spotted on the east side of Mount Royal.

Called Aurores Montreal, the outdoor illuminations are part of the city’s 375th birthday celebrations.

Between December 11th and January 1st, 2017, Mount Royal will be lit up each night with a unique light display created by artist Marc Seguin. Seguin has teamed up with multimedia company, 4U2C, “to offer a unique experience to Montrealers and Montreal lovers.”

The projections cover more than 15,000 square meters and range in design from colourful frescoes to the poetry and lyrics of Marie Uguay and Leonard Cohen.

Though the focus is Mount Royal, there will be periodic light displays across the city at such sites as Saint Joseph’s Oratory, Olympic Stadium, and the Biosphere.

Check out the gorgeous photos below of Aurores Montreal from this past week.
