GATINEAU, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Aug. 31, 2015) - Canadian Heritage, in collaboration with exclusive sponsor Manulife, wishes to inform the public that the inaugural season of Northern Lights will conclude on September 12, 2015.
This free sound and light show on Parliament Hill is presented every evening, seven days a week (weather permitting); as of September 1, showings will begin at 9 p.m.

SPECIAL PRESENTATION! On Saturday, September 19, come see Northern Lights as part of the Ottawa International Animation Festival and Nuit Blanche Ottawa-Gatineau.
