My friend Jen and I were one of the 8,000 some people that attended the illumination event at Canalside last night. While it was a neat experience and nice to see I am going to be honest and say I wasn’t “wowed” by the event. Leading up to the event you saw it all over social media and the news that it was going to be this big event and it was {I mean 8,000 people is a lot of people} but it wasn’t as lively as I thought it would be.

I will probably get some people who disagree with me, but I’m just being honest. For all the hype that built around it I guess you could say I was expecting more. More of what, I don’t know.. I thought the music was mediocre and maybe I wasn’t as patient to see the illuminations appear and change. Yes, it was nice to see lights on the grain elevators, yes I think it was cool that we had people and companies step up to make this happen and yes, I think having that many people in our community come out to attend the event was beyond great, but I think I would enjoy the experience of seeing the lights just as much on any other night. Maybe I’m being to critical, but that was my take on the City of Light.
