Foresta Lu­mina gets big award in Cal­i­for­nia

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

On April 2nd, at the 22nd edi­tion of the Thea Awards in Ana­heim, Cal­i­for­nia, mem­bers of the Parc de la Gorge de Coat­i­cook team re­ceived a Thea Award for Foresta Lu­mina in the cat­e­gory “In­ter­ac­tive at­trac­tion of the year, lim­ited bud­get”.

Rec­og­nized as the highest honor from the amuse- ment in­dus­try, Thea Awards are given out to rec­og­nize ex­cep­tional projects. Sur­rounded by peo­ple of in­flu­ence in the in­dus­try, the Parc’s general di­rec­tor, Caro­line Sage, and di­rec­tor Marie Belzile, of Mo­ment Fac­tory, ac­cepted the in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion. “This is an un­for­get­table mo­ment that will give us wings for the years to come. My motto was and still is that cre­ativ­ity is ac­cept­ing to change and, even more, to have the courage to dare more than oth­ers,” com­mented Ms. Sage.

Since its cre­ation in 2014, the Foresta Lu­mina phe­nom­e­non has at­tracted more than 225,000 visi­tors to the Coat­i­cook park. A press con­fer­ence will be held in May to an­nounce what’s new for the 2016 sea­son.
