L-Guy Laflamme, R-Mayor Jim Watson stand in front of the cauldron, a towering sculpture that will be lit up with fire and remain lit all year.

It’s not just another new year ushered in; it’s Canada’s 150th anniversary. Yet, Ottawa is lighting up all year starting with “crazy-wild-creative” experiences, which surely exceed any plans in the nation.

Did you hear about the Godzilla-sized automated spider crawling through the core, through the crowds and onto buildings? This is only one piece of this year-long show.

Tomorrow night, is the perfect New Year’s extravaganza for families. It starts early and you can leave before the kiddies become sleeping cargo.
