North Bay’s Great Christmas Light Show

Dec 14, 2017 | Canadore College

(NORTH BAY, ONT.) – North Bay has its own Christmas light demonstration at Canadore College’s Commerce Court Campus.

A slight departure from shows like ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight, where households compete for a prize, the Canadore light show is actually based in collaboration.

Faculty and students from the college’s electrical techniques, carpentry and welding programs built and installed an impressive light structure synchronized to well-loved Christmas carols and popular music of the season.

Families are invited to park their vehicles, tune into 88.1 FM and enjoy the entertaining demonstration that is sure to get audiences dancing and singing themselves.

The tree will be lit through the holiday season.

Canadore College trains people through applied learning, leadership and innovation. It provides access to over 75 full-time quality programs and has outstanding faculty and success services to students from nearly 400 Canadian communities and 15 international countries. The College and its students add nearly $244 million to Nipissing Parry Sound Service Area economy. Approximately 1,000 students graduate from Canadore each year, and they join 44,000 alumni working across the globe. Canadore receives less than 50 per cent of its traditional funding from the provincial Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development and relies on its own innovation and entrepreneurial endeavours and generous donors for the balance.
