BC Place glows gold "Northern Lights Display" for childhood cancer

BC Place Northern Lights Display

The Northern Lights display at BC Place will glitter with gold this Saturday, September 21 in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month’s Gold Ribbon Campaign.

The special lighting of BC Place’s Northern Lights roof display will support the efforts of Gold Ribbon Campaign in bringing awareness to the 300-350 kids in British Columbia undergoing treatment for childhood cancer at any given time.

The stadium roof façade – known as the Northern Lights Display – uses 1700 ‘ETFE’ panels, stacked four rows high, and 6,800 linear feet of energy-efficient LED lights to create customizable lighting displays. BC Place has used the entire roof to promote specific events, create seasonal displays and raise awareness for community and charitable organizations.
