News about the Rainbow Balls in Montreal's Gay Village

“The iconic rainbow balls are coming down in the Village (and you can buy some):

The rainbow of balls is coming down in the Gay Village in a few weeks – and this time it's for good. The 180,000 balls have become an iconic part of the Village in the summer, creating a canopy over Ste-Catherine St. from St-Hubert St. to Papineau Ave. in full colour since 2017 and in pink starting in 2011. Designed by landscape architect and urban designer, Claude Cormier, the balls were only supposed to be in place for one year but became so popular, they remained for seven. They come down for the last time on Sept. 23. A new installation will be selected by a jury and in place as of May 2020.”

Last year’s speaker, landscape architect, Ron Williams, spoke to WASM members about this colourful installation.
