ABOUT THE EVENT / PROMOTION
Bringing the Winter to life takes Beautiful, Bold and Bright ideas. From February 10th to 20th, We’ve engaged 20+ artists from across the country and around the world to reimagine the incredible space on the rooftop of Jackson Square. Audiences can explore the nooks and crannies to find a Volkwagon Beetle converted into a miniature city, glowing poems, glittering sequins, an interactive LED bonfire, Woodland creatures brought to life in 3D and so much more! Inside the mall you’ll find the Bay Street entrance’s vaulted ceiling completely reimagined, leading up to the rooftop.
To add to the experience we'll have local food vendors, FREE Friday night concerts, Pop-Up performances by theatre and drag artists, an open-air ice rink, and a series of special events aimed at making the downtown core a vibrant and light-filled wonderland.

Luis Franco - Worldwide Salsa Concert on February 10th

Hamilton is a Canadian port city on the western tip of Lake Ontario. The Niagara Escarpment, a huge, forested ridge known locally as "the mountain" and dotted with conservation areas and waterfalls, divides the city. The long-distance Bruce Trail runs along the escarpment. HMCS Haida, a naval warship on the city's lakefront, and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in the south, trace Canada's military past.
