It's a night time ART event. The main street will be closed to vehicular traffic and there will be performances of music, theatre, dance and visual art in alley ways, parking lots, store windows, and other unconventional spaces. It starts at 6:59pm on October 1st and runs until 11:59pm. There is no admission...just come on downtown and walk about. Bars and restaurants will be open and some will be featuring special menus in honour of the occasion.
There will be information in Saturday's Cape Breton Post about some of the venues AND there will be volunteers in the streets with information too. ALSO check out http://www.lumiere2011.ca/ to see a PDF of the schedule and the artists involved.
