MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE TIMELINE
2005 - Report on the 6th edition
Arrivederci MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS!
Montréal, Monday, February 28, 2005
It was last year on the same date that we delivered our re-cap for the 5th MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS Festival
And on that day, we proved beyond any doubt that we’d more than lived up to our mandate of creating a perennial
winter-time festival to draw Montrealers from hibernation and give everyone else a reason to come to our fair city
in the dead of winter. So with the success of this year’s 6th edition, it’s safe to assert that we’ve also demonstrated
how the changes made to the 2004 roster of activities were successful by design, not accident, and proof of the perennial
viability of the exciting event.
