“Glow Downtown Winter Light Festival is a celebration of winter and light, allowing Calgarians to embody our longest season and explore the downtown core through a series of multimedia art installations," Ro said in a Tuesday news release
The festival also features extended patios, food trucks and fire pits to keep attendees warm.
