Past POIs - Northern Lights Show [Ottawa, Ontario, Canada]

Over the Civic long weekend we visited Ottawa and got to see the Northern Lights show there which happens every evening during summer times and is a free bilingual show.

The Northern Lights show is a huge projection against the parliament building and talks about the history of Canada and I thought was a neat attraction for tourists and Canadians alike. It lasts roughly 30 minutes long.

Make sure to bring some lawn chairs so that you don't need to stand throughout the show. A worthwhile visit in my opinion, especially since Ottawa doesn't have much of a nightlife.

To put on such a display, there are 17 projectors that create the seamless single projection, 18 speakers provide a 7.1 surround sound.
