The City of Toronto has teamed up with the CN Tower and CHUM 1045 to host a virtual New Year’s Eve light show.

According to a news release, the city landmark and local radio station are joining forces to provide a New Year’s Eve virtual event on Thursday, starting at 11:58 pm.

“We are all looking forward to bidding the year 2020 goodbye. Let’s do so safely at home, with only members of our household, and enjoy these spectacular shows together while staying apart,” said Mayor John Tory.

“I want to thank Toronto residents for their resilience, perseverance, creativity and acts of kindness toward each other during this difficult year and wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy New Year.”

As all in-person New Year’s Eve events are cancelled, including those at Nathan Phillips Square, the event hopes to bring some joy to Toronto households as the year comes to an end.

“We’re looking forward to lighting the way for 2021 with a special light show set to music,” said Peter George, chief operating officer of the CN Tower.

“The CN Tower is proud to be part of Toronto’s and Canada’s New Year’s Eve celebration as we look forward to a brighter year ahead.”
