Why Banff holds a special place in my heart

I love being Canadian. I love showcasing the beauty of our country from coast-to-coast, and we have been lucky enough to do that over the years. From Catherine’s visits to beautiful British Columbia, to east coast adventures with Julio in Halifax. One of the first places I ever visited was Banff with Catherine many many years ago. From picturesque Lake Louise to the gondolla ride that made me realize how afraid of heights Catherine was, I still think back fondly on that trip. So when I found out about ILLUMINATIONS: human/nature taking place today, I knew I had to share it with you!

And just because I like to laugh and be silly, I thought it appropriate to share this photo of Catherine and I from the last time we were in Banff. You’re welcome… 

I loved exploring what Banff had to offer. A truly magical place to say the least… 

So what is happening today in one of my favourite Canadian cities? Well, “ILLUMINATIONS: human/nature will combine storytelling, projection and technology to uniquely celebrate Canada’s landscape, people and heritage. Commissioned by Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and created in collaboration with contemporary visual artist Sarah Fuller and Montreal multimedia studio Moment Factory, ILLUMINATIONS will light up Banff National Park, Canada’s first national park, like never before.”
OMG this sounds so amazing, right?! For those of you in Banff today, make sure to share your photos and tag @BanffCentre on Twitter and Instagram use #ILLUMINATIONS & #ILLUMINATIONS150. And if, like me, you aren’t able to make it to Banff, the event will also be taking place here in Toronto from October 19-21. For more information, make sure to check out the ILLUMINATIONS: human/nature website.
