Festival of Lights to be Showcased at Madcap

Last night was the official debut of a lighting installation on the 535-foot-tall Cathedral of Learning and the Stephen Foster Memorial on University of Pittsburgh's campus. The buildings also look over Schenley Plaza, the location of this year's Madcap Masquearade, and will serve as an elaborate backdrop for the ball next Saturday.  Special clear tents have been arranged so that masqueraders will be able to see the lighting display throughout the night without obstruction.

The Cathedral of Learning display is just one of the amazing lighting displays, including Katz Plaza and the Omni William Penn Hotel, that are illuminating out city for the next few weeks.

For more information check out the official photo-site for the Festival of Lights, and this Post-Gazette article that gives more details on the project.
