Back in May 17, 1642, French colonist Jeanne Mance and Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve led settlers unto what we now know as the island of Montreal (Quebec, Canada.) Yesterday evening, 375 years later, the city celebrated its birthday by clothing one of its most beautiful bridges, the Jacques Cartier bridge, in an animated light show that blew everyone’s mind away. The 30-minute visual and musical experience was brought to life thanks to multimedia entertainment powerhouse ‘Moment Factory’ and the Montreal Metropolitan Orchestra.
The full show is not available for viewing, but you can check out a short video summary below. (please note that the media player could take a few seconds to load)
