NEWS RELEASE. For immediate release. 

Foresta Lumina, a thunder-themed activity you’ll want to experience again and again!

Coaticook, June 14, 2019 – In 2014, Quebec’s tourism industry was thunderstruck by the creation of Foresta Lumina. The activity will inaugurate its 6th season under this theme. This year, LUMINEES (Foresta Lumina visitors) will experience a magical and thunderous night.

“Foresta Lumina has offered new features each year since it opened. Our objective was to provide returning guests with a new and enhanced magical night at Foresta Lumina every year. Since its inception, we have added 4 new zones, a magical reception area, shuttles boasting Foresta Lumina’s colours, a space for visitors to capture their experience, a sneak peek downtown, and more, to maintain the magical atmosphere of Foresta Lumina,” noted Caroline Sage.

“When we compare the 2014 pathway with the one you will discover this summer, we feel immensely proud. Our objective was and still is to be the leading figure in night-illuminated pathways, and I believe we still are. For this 6th season, we had to upgrade the technology and add fibre optics, an investment that is not as obvious to visitors,” stated François Lajeunesse, Chair of the Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook’s Board of Directors. On a more creative note, Marie Belzile from Moment Factory said : «In this year’s new Thunder zone, we plunge visitors into a breathtaking ballet of lights. The scene infuses a new territory of the Gorge and magnifies its grandiose forest. We hope that this immersive and explosive scene will charm Foresta regulars and new visitors.»

The 2019 season is therefore officially open to tourists in the enchanted region of Coaticook!
